Glynwood's 2020 Farm Dinner series kicks off with the return of one of our all-time favorite chefs: Chef Jay Lippin. Lippin, currently chef-in-residence at the East End Food Institute, is a long-time collaborator of Glynwood's on everything from our Kitchen Cultivars program to our Farm Dinner Series, and even the Cider Project. February's dinner will bring Chef Jay's unique craft home to the Hudson Valley for a special guest appearance. Don't let the winter doldrums get you down: come break bread with your fellow community members at this first Farm Dinner of the 2020 season. As we did last year, all our public programs are pay-what-you-can pricing. UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED: GLYNWOOD FARM DINNERS ARE BYOB EVENTS.
Attention farmland owners and farmland seekers!
Please join Glynwood, National Young Farmers Coalition and Local Farms Fund for this information and interactive event. Participants will receive direct technical assistance from Regional Navigators in American Farmland Trust’s Farmland for the Next Generation program. Event registrants will identify their specific needs for technical assistance with creating a farmlink profile, farmland assessment, leasing options, and evaluating farming goals.
Guest speakers Sandy Gordon and Josh Rockwood of West Wind Acres will kick off the event by sharing the story of their successful farmland transition.
The event will also feature a speed networking event for farmland seekers and farmland owners. Refreshments will be served.
Please note that this event will take place at Columbia Greene Community College (4400 Route 23, Hudson, NY 12534). We will meet in Room 612 of the Professional Academic Center.
This event is supported by Farmland for a New Generation New York, in partnership with American Farmland Trust and the Department of Agriculture and Markets with funding from the State of New York.

The attorneys will be available for one-on-one consultation at the end of the day. Lunch and refreshments are included in the cost of registration.
Snow date for this event is Thursday, February 27 from 10 am - 4 pm.
One out of every three bites we eat and the growth of almost all our fruits, nuts and vegetables would be impossible without pollination from bees. A new documentary feature, The Pollinators, directed by Peter Nelson and produced by Sally Roy, Nelson and Michael Reuter, presents the fascinating and untold story and warns that the bees are in serious danger.
This March, Glynwood is honored to be collaborating with Depot Docs, The Depot Theatre, director Peter Nelson and producer Sally Roy on a screening + Q&A of The Pollinators. Lynda Prim, Glynwood's Senior Farm Director, will be present to share a farmer's perspective and contextualize the impact pollinators have on the Hudson Valley regional food system during a Q&A after the film.

March's Farm Dinner is all about our eager anticipation of the coming growing season. For this vegetarian-focused dinner, highlighting the special role the community plays in supporting agriculture (get it? C-S-A!), we are excited to welcome Chef Mark Margiotta, Director of Food and Beverage from the super-secret-invite-only-venue The Dutchess. No special invite here, though -- all are welcome 'round the table for this ode to the first crops of spring. All our public programs are pay-what-you-can pricing.
