Outstanding in the Field

 
At our table in the billowy hills of the Berkshires, you may convince yourself you’re in Ireland. It’s easy to do. The surrounding landscape is overwhelmingly green, dotted with the changing trees of Autumn. Farmers Jen and Pete use no-till farming and regenerative agriculture to nourish the soil that nurtures their top-quality vegetables and greens. They’re also passionate about educating and empowering their community through home garden programs and a thriving CSA. Chef James Massey of Field and Cellar will cook us a meal that celebrates his farming and Native American heritage.

 

When: September 8th, 3 pm

Vandana Shiva: Northeast Earth Journey

Vandana Shiva is a global advocate for the rights of smallholders, family farmers and agrarian communities. She trained as a quantum physicist but has dedicated her life to both practical and paradigmatic change in food systems and land stewardship. She is an author, policy expert, and food sovereignty activist. She has been named one of Forbes Magazines World's Seven Most Powerful Feminists and is a recipient of the Right Livelihood Award,  also known as the "Alternative Nobel Prize."
At Dr. Shiva's request, her talk will be preceded by comments from some local activists and farmers on some on-the-ground efforts in Massachusetts. She will be introduced by Bill Braun, NOFA/Mass Board member, organic farmer, and founder of the Freed Seed Federation, an organization dedicated to involving farmers in the restoration and development of regionally adapted and farmer-controlled seed stocks.
Additional comments will be given by Jen Salinetti, a NOFA/Mass board member and Berkshires no-till farmer on the topic of soil health and carbon restoration, and by Willa Sippel, a Junior at Northampton High school who serves as the co-head of Environmental Club, co-hub coordinator of Sunrise Northampton and on the organizing committee for the Massachusetts school climate strikes.
