‘Farmscape Ecology’ featured as part of Town of Rochester series


The film “Farmscape Ecology” will screen as part of the Town of Rochester Environmental Conservation Commission’s (ECC) monthly discussion series on Thursday, February 18 from 6:30-8pm. The event will be held virtually due to COVID-19. “Farmscape Ecology” highlights research within our Applied Farmscape Ecology Program where scientists study the connections between agriculture and ecology. The documentary short is a collaboration with Oceans 8 Films. The screening will follow with a panel discussion featuring Anne Bloomfield, Farmscape Ecology Program Manager and Conrad Vispo and Claudia Knab-Vispo of Hawthorne Valley Farmscape Ecology Program.

The Town of Rochester’s ECC launched its monthly Third Thursday Nature Series in 2019, featuring local authorities on nature, environment, and conservation. They have presented such topics as local geology, fungi, permaculture, native plants, pollinators, edible landscaping, forest management, birds, and more. The talks are free and open to the community.

In January “Farmscape Ecology” was chosen to screen at this year’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival, a premier festival for environmental films.
