The past two growing seasons were unlike any other. Challenges including changing consumer patterns, supply chain disruptions, climate volatility, and worker shortages forced farmers to repeatedly adapt to new norms. This constant state of flux presents the opportunity for reflection, learning, collaboration, and new planning models for future growing seasons.
The Hudson Valley CSA Coalition’s second annual virtual Summit will provide an opportunity to collectively explore and address these challenges in meaningful ways. Featuring six farmer-led learning circles on topics such as farmer housing, and a keynote by Glynwood Director of Agriculture Laura Lengnick, the Summit is a much-needed space for Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farmers and food systems professionals to connect, learn from one another, and identify solutions to make the regional CSA landscape as vibrant as possible.
