The Dish: Farming in the Time of Climate Change
Vermont’s weather is evolving in wild, unpredictable ways. Long-term meteorological trends show the state becoming warmer and wetter. How will farmers adapt to the environmental upheaval and keep food growing through fast-shifting weather patterns? How will these changes ripple through the distribution chain — and how will they affect what Vermonters eat in restaurants, institutions and at family tables?
Join a panel of local experts for a lively discussion on the challenges and rewards of growing food in a changing climate — now and into the future.
