Sustainable Agricultural Practices: Lessons from Clagett Farm

This speaker series event will discuss how both a regional, environmental non-profit and a metropolitan food bank came to view sustainable farms that serve the community as critical to their success. We will examine the details of how a farm is able to serve people of all income levels, while protecting the Chesapeake Bay and paying the farm’s bills, and consider ideas about how to expand local, sustainable agriculture in our region. 

See video of presentation below.

Date/Time: Wednesday, November 19, at 10:30 a.m.–12:00 noon
Location: Boardroom, 4th Floor, County Administration Building (CAB), 14741 Governor Oden Bowie Drive, Upper Marlboro, MD 20772
CM: 1.5 (pending)
