Farm Crew Training: Compassionate Communication

April 24, 4:00-8:00pm including dinner
Hawthorne Valley, 327 County Route 21c, Ghent, NY 12075

Building upon Glynwood’s previous workshops in “Compassionate Communication for Farmers”, these trainings are intended to support the team cohesion of farm crews.

Key concepts will include:

• Conflict management styles, and growing our ability to respond in a way that is alignment with our personal and organizational values.
• Skill building around giving and receiving feedback.
• A few things you can do to decrease stress and increase the capacity of yourself and your team.

The training will be offered twice, at two different sites in the Hudson Valley (these will be identical trainings to enable attendance, it is not a series). Meals will be served to enable crews to attend together, and the free cost of entry is thanks to a USDA BFRDP grant for our Farm Business Incubator.

Regional Eating for Health

While the global, industrial food system has proven detrimental effects on ecosystem and human health, adopting a regional diet promises positive health outcomes for individuals and contributes to the ecological sustainability that is necessary for public health. The Glynwood Center for Regional Food and Farming invites physicians and medical professionals working in or with hospitals to join us for a weekend of immersive, hands-on exploration of the connections between farming, food, and human health.

Minutes from Cold Spring, New York, Glynwood is an established leader and innovator in developing a regional food system closely tied to ecologically sound agriculture. This workshop offers a unique opportunity for experiential learning on our working farm and professional development within an intimate group of peers.

-regional agriculture’s importance to healthy diets
-the role of cooking and eating in supporting mental and social well-being
-the definition of regenerative agriculture and its ecological benefits
-the connection between regenerative agricultural practices and nutritionally dense food
-tools and resources for advising patients on how and why to adopt a regional diet

Highlights:
-Dr. David Katz and author Mark Bittman discuss the truth about “eating right”
-Hands-on cooking lesson with Chef Dr. Robert Graham and Chef Richard La Marita
-Insights into real-world applications from Marydale DeBor, JD and Hudson Valley Hospital
