Event Description

To protect the health of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved this event from Town Hall Seattle to an online conversation via Zoom.

KNKX's Bellamy Pailthorp moderates.

You’ve probably heard that a quarter of global greenhouse emissions come from agriculture. But what does climate change mean for farmers here in Washington? To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and in collaboration with Town Hall Seattle, PCC Farmland Trust is proud to present national bestselling authors and mother-daughter duo Frances Moore Lappé and Anna Lappé, who bring a multi-generational perspective on the environment, the climate crisis, and our food system. Frances and Anna will be joined by a panel of local farmers who will share real stories about climate change impacts on farmland and ways they are working to mitigate and adapt.

Elizabeth Bragg of Long Hearing Farm
David Haakenson of Jubilee Farm
Samantha Alvarez of Alvarez Organic Farms
Linda Neunzig of Ninety Farms
Andy Wilcox of Wilcox Family Farms

Together, we will honor the power of soil and the knowledge of farmers as one answer to Washington’s low-carbon, resilient future. Join us!
