This April the Vermont Garden Network will present an online panel discussion on the impacts of climate change on gardening (and gardeners) through a food security lens.
Help us provide the most relevant information & resources for you by responding to these two questions:
What has been your most persistent gardening challenge
due to climate change impacts?
How did you compensate, and/or what different results
have you experienced because of it?
Please email your responses to: Michelle@vcgn.org
Thank you! The first 25 respondents will receive a complimentary copy of Lifting the Yoke by Ron Krupp (a Vermont gardener and author, aka the ole woodchuck).
Please provide your mailing address if you’d like to receive one.
Climate Changing Gardening
is a three-part series to include stories, presentations, discussion and resources for how we can adapt for best results as our world changes. It will be offered via Zoom, April 6, 13 & 20 (6-7:30pm).
PART 1: How food secure are we, and how is climate change impacting our food system?
PART 2: Floods, frost and fungus – what are we experiencing as direct consequences of climate change?
PART 3: Strategies and resources – what have we learned and what has us stumped?
Since 2001, the Vermont Garden Network has worked with hundreds of schools and community partners to start, sustain, and grow gardens, building strong local food systems and vibrant educational sites.
Contact us – We’d love to hear from you!
