Virtual Film Screening and Discussion “Farmscape Ecology” 

June 16, 2020

Hosted by the Hudson Valley Farm Hub on Zoom.

Farming is ever-evolving. Today, when we think about what’s to come next for farmers a key question is, “How do we produce food and still maintain a livelihood for farmers, while respecting the needs of other organisms with which we share the land?” As part of the Applied Farmscape Ecology Research Collaborative, scientists and researchers examine that question by researching and monitoring soil, water, and wildlife to discover how farming and wildlife co-exist.


Join in for the premiere of “Farmscape Ecology” followed by an engaging Q&A and a discussion with the researchers in the film and award-winning film director Jon Bowermaster.
