Events

Farmers are invited to join us at the Farm Hub for topical meetings during the growing season.

Farmer Events

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.
