Perspectives on Farming with Nature
On November 16, 2019 The Hudson Valley Farm Hub hosted a half-day event at The Ashokan Center that focused on the interconnections between agriculture and nature. What can farms offer to biodiversity conservation efforts? What might wild organisms provide in terms of “services” to the production of crops? Free and open to the public, “Perspectives on Farming with Nature,” featured presentations by researchers working with the Applied Farmscape Ecology Research Collaborative, a project co-coordinated by the Farm Hub and Hawthorne Valley’s Farmscape Ecology Program. Below is a selection of livestreamed videos and PowerPoint presentations.
