Dr. Jonathan Lundgren
Blue Dasher Farm & the Ecdysis Foundation
In an increasingly complex and inter-related world, systemic challenges, such as climate change, can be daunting. Fortunately, nature - itself a highly complex web of relationships - holds answers. Likewise, farmers - people who actually tend nature – often develop valuable insights working within the complexity of agriculture. Cultivating a more resilient, regenerative agriculture will require a deeper awareness of and appreciation for lessons of the “field” and those who work it.
This lecture will explore the role of cutting-edge science in addressing problems faced by farmers, ranchers and bee keepers through applied ecological research, guided citizen science, innovative partnerships and peer-to-peer learning.
A public lecture, open to all. Suggested donation: $5-10
