Climate Adaptive Gardening Series: Adaptation for your own garden

April 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

*THIS CLASS IS FULL* – email molly@growfoodnorthampton.org to be added to the waitlist!

 

Join climate scientist and community gardener Laura Hilberg of EcoAdapt to explore the realities of climate change in western Massachusetts and the impact on farmers and gardeners in our local landscape.

 

Climate change is already affecting our community in the form of frequent, severe flooding, heat waves, and unseasonably warm winters, and these impacts are likely to become even more extreme over the coming decades. Although it is difficult to predict what will happen and challenging to cope with climate change on top of all of the existing stressors we are all dealing with, there is a lot we can do to prepare for and respond to the changes that are happening – and hopefully build a better, stronger community in the process!

 

This workshop will introduce community gardeners and other interested participants to climate change adaptation, which focuses on how to cope with and respond to climate change. We will also outline the changes that we are most likely to experience in western Massachusetts and how they might impact our community garden, and provide some resources for participants who are interested in exploring these topics in greater detail. Finally, we will leave ample time for questions. We encourage you to ask questions in the registration form ahead of time, so that we have the information to answer them at the workshop!
