Food for Thought, Food for the Future
In 2006, Glynwood inaugurated a series of presentations and workshops entitled Food2: Food for Thought—Food for the Future. The basic question that prompted the series was “Will America’s legacy of independent farmers and fresh, regionally produced food be part of our future?”
The series examined cutting edge ideas and best practices from within our own region, across the country and abroad. The workshops were designed to encourage collaboration among the farmers, local officials and others with whom we work, and to support our on-going effort to strengthen the regional food system.
We plan to continue the series in the future, focusing on emerging topics that relate to sustainable agriculture—from climate change and water issues to the economic viability of regional farming. Some of these will be held in New York City, while others will be held at Glynwood Center in Cold Spring.
