Community Forum: Creating a More Resilient Community Through Stewardship

May 1, 2022 @ 3:00 pm 5:00 pm

Pitney Meadows is proud to relaunch our Community Forum on Sunday, May 1, from 3 – 5pm.
You’re invited to come early for a 2pm tour of the farm and gardens and to learn more about upcoming events and programs. This is a free, rain or shine event!

We’ll be talking about stewardship, what it means, why it matters, and how we can all become stewards in creating a more resilient community.

We’re excited to welcome key-note speaker, Philip Ackerman-Leist, discussing Regenerating Stewardship While Stewarding Regeneration.

He is a homesteader, regenerative farmer, and author of several books including: A Precautionary Tale: How One Small Town Banned Pesticides, Preserved its Food Heritage, and Inspired a Movement and Rebuilding the Foodshed: How to Create Local, Sustainable, and Secure Food Systems.

He will be joined by a panel of local and passionate leaders and organizations in the fields of agriculture, land conservation, community health, and accessible open space:

Barbara Glaser, Pitney Meadows, Board Member
