Climate Adaptive Gardening – Spring 2024 Series

Hands-on workshops, discussions, and presentations to move forward as a community in this critical time of climate change.

If you grew food anywhere in the valley last year, chances are your summer was defined by rain – and a lot of it. For many of us, flooding at the Grow Food Northampton Community Garden brought the reality of climate change right to our doorstep. At a time when we thought we’d be harvesting, we were instead cutting ripe tomatoes off the vine and tossing them into the compost. It was a stark wake up call to the economic, emotional, and environmental impacts of the human-caused climate crisis. 

Yet, this crisis is not new – for decades, farmers, gardeners, and other land workers have been on the frontlines, experiencing loss, hardship, and grief, and also figuring out new ways for us to survive. This year, we invite you to learn some of these tools in our Climate Adaptive Gardening Series.  

The series will kick off on April 13 with an introduction to no-till practices with farmer and educator Rose Cherneff. Throughout the growing season, we’ll be offering hands-on workshops, discussions, and presentations to foster the learning we need to move forward as a community in this critical time of climate change.
