Pesticides & Herbicides: Farm Tour & Panel Discussion

  • The Farm Between Route 15 Jeffersonville, VT (map)

Rural Vermont and The Farm Between will explore the use of pesticides and herbicides in Vermont.  John Hayden will provide a tour of The Farm Between and its goals and practices in relationship to pollinator and insect health; a panel will provide information and perspective on policy, research, practices, and responses (on and off farm) related to pesticide use; and there will be time for socializing as we enjoy food from the wood-fired NOFA pizza oven and snow-cone slushies made from The Farm Between's own simple syrups!  

Our goals are for folks to leave this event with more information about pesticides, policy related to pesticides, and what people and communities in Vermont - on and off the farm - are doing in response.

For planning purpose, please RSVP to Shelby at shelby@ruralvermont.org or here: https://www.facebook.com/events/219959005347632/
