The first conference convened in February 2013 to bring farmers and researchers together for a conversation about the impact a changing climate might have on small farms and local agriculture. According to abundancenc.org,
during the conference, farmers chat with scientists and researchers, as well as other farmers. This is a chance for NC farmers to put their hands on the pens and democratize agricultural policy on a local level. It is the growers, the researchers, the activists, and the eaters who will make successful adaptation possible. All of us are being called upon to “stretch,” or to challenge ourselves to change how we do things. Passing knowledge along at events like this conference is one way to do it.
