Thriving in the Era of Climate Disruption:
Resiliency Strategies for Land and Communities

Online and Onsite

Keynote Speaker:

Precious Phiri will be joining us from her home in Zimbabwe, where she works as the founding director of EarthWisdom Consulting Co. and as the Africa Coordinator of Regeneration International. She uses the Holistic Decision Making framework in community organizing and when working with rural communities to reverse poverty and ecological degradation, bringing communal work to global platforms. Her experience navigating present-day climate disruption will allow her to guide and inspire us to navigate the challenges we are facing, and will continue to face, as growers in the Northeast.

This year’s interactive workshops will be beneficial to communities, land stewards and food producers in the Northeast. A hybrid event, the Conference will offer attendees the opportunity to participate in workshops in person or online, as they feel most comfortable.
