Slow Food NYC Food Almanac 2015 - Climate Change, Agriculture, and Resilience
Brooklyn Winery
Brooklyn, NY
Share this event:


Since 1818, farmers have relied on the Farmers' Almanac for homey wit and uncannily accurate weather predictions to inform their planting, harvesting, and day-to-day living.  In 2015, Slow Food New York City, continuing a Food Systems Network NYC tradition, will sponsor the fifth annual Food Almanac, a food and farming prognostication inspired by the Farmers' Almanac.  

This is a singular opportunity for food-active individuals to consider all things food and farming in 2015. A panel of farmers, scientists, and policymakers will speculate on an incredibly important aspect of food and farming - "Climate Change, Agriculture, and Resilience." Attendees will enjoy local wines & beers accompanied by seasonal snacks, so while the topic is sobering, not all will be food for thought!

Date: Tuesday,February 3, 2015
Time: 6:30PM to 9:30PM

Amanda Andrews, Farmer, Tamarack Hollow Farm
Joseph Musso, Senior Program Manager, Agency Resiliency, Office of the Mayor, City of New York
