2020 Annual Meeting
December 3, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Throughout the country and right here in Maine, agricultural communities are weathering the combined storms of climate change, a pandemic, and inequity. We know that the future will only bring more challenges for the many hands and lands that feed us. At MFT’s 2020 Annual Meeting, we’ll hear from community members who are working at the intersection of food, farming, and climate change — and are finding hope.
Tony Sutton, PhD, Community Food Facilitator at the ME Shellfish Learning Network and Adjunct Instructor at University of Maine, Orono
Kate Olson, Maine-based writer and PhD candidate in sociology at Boston College
Nick Jackson, farmer at Jackson Regenerational Farm in Atkinson
Laura Demmel, coordinator for the Open Technology Ecosystem for Agriculture Management (OpenTEAM) initiative
Melissa Law, farmer at Bumbleroot Organic Farm in Windham and member of the Maine Climate Council
We know we are stronger together, and that it will take all of us to create lasting solutions for a better future. With your support, we can protect farmland for future generations, empower farmers, and connect farmers to land so they can help feed local communities and steward our natural resources for future generations. Join us for an evening of inspiration and community!
