New Times, New Tools: Cultivating Climate Resilience on Your Farm

Laura Lengnick, author of Resilient Agriculture, will be at Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery on Saturday, Feb. 18, from 2– 5 pm to discuss her book and look at PFFC as a case study of resilience in the face of climate change.  She will discuss how we can meld two areas of her experience and expertise, climate change in agriculture and storytelling, to help others understand what lies ahead and how we can respond to it.  Copies of her book will be available for purchase, and we’ll have some local food snacks available as well. Around 4 pm we’ll wind it up and go forward with our ideas to make our responses to climate change accessible and important to our customers and the greater public.

Laura’s visit is hosted by U of I’s Agroecology and Sustainable Agriculture Program and Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery.  PFF is located at 4410 N Lincoln Ave, Champaign, IL 61822
