The Whallonsburg Grange Hall Lyceum will present a program on “Women Working the Land: Sustainable Food and Local Farming” on Tuesday, October 2 at 7:30pm. This is the second lecture in the Fall series entitled “Landscapes, Real and Imagined.”
From the earliest beginnings of human history, women have developed agriculture, worked the land and shaped the landscape. Today, women bring their own values and experiences to farming and to the land.
In this talk, Tatiana Abatemarco, a lecturer in the Environmental Program at UVM, will share findings from her study of women organic farmers in Vermont. She will explore the successes and challenges of these local farmers who are working toward social, environmental, and economic sustainability. $5 / students free.
The Grange is at 1610 NYS Route 22 in Essex, NY (five miles south of the Village). More information is available at www.thegrangehall.info.
