During the growing season, we welcome farmers for on-site discussions of the Farm Hub’s work as it progresses. These field days and twilight meetings are an invaluable way for farmers to participate in and learn about the resilient practices we are using on the farm.
We hope that many area farmers will join us, as together we continue to build a collaborative and inspired learning community in Hudson Valley agriculture.
Hudson River Stories at the Library
Albert Wisner Public Library, Friday, January 31st, 7:00
Filmmaker and adventurer Jon Bowemaster will screen and then discuss two of his films about America’s First river – the Hudson – On January 31st.
Two Films on the Hudson’s Life and heritage:
“A Living River” chronicles the efforts of Riverkeeper, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and others to restore the life and the ecosystem in the Hudson River.
“Seeds of Hope” follows the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe at Akwesasne, the Hudson Valley Farm Hub and Seedshed as they honor Native American seeds that are at risk of disappearing. Can they preserve their rich agricultural heritage and the stories that each seed holds?
The Farm Hub has collaborated with Oceans 8 Films on short films that showcase our various initiatives. These films are often screened as part of Oceans 8 ‘s Hudson River Stories.

Growing with the Grain, a short documentary film on the small grains research trials, continues to screen as part of Oceans 8 Films `Hope on the Hudson 2’ series. The trials are a collaboration between the Farm Hub and Cornell University and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County to gather data on a variety of grains and share their findings with area farmers interested in adding grains into their rotations and moving into the local grains market.
