The Horticultural Society of New York invites you to come explore the present state and future of agriculture and the way that we, as city residents, connect with our food and farmers. We are very excited to be joined by seven influential representatives from the field of agriculture. Each approaches food production from a different angle, but all share a love of farming and a passion for sustainably feeding our communities.
This is a very dynamic time for our nation’s farmers. More than ever, we, as a nation, are starting to ask questions about where our food comes from, how it’s grown, and what we can do to take more control over such an important part of our lives that, for years, has started to resemble an industry more than a livelihood.
We hope that you’ll join us to discuss the challenges facing organic farmers, food production at urban farms, community gardens, the new agrarian movement, and the obstacles facing all of those who grow our food. We look forward to your attendance at what promises to be an informative and inspiring conference.
