Thursday, October 13th from 6 – 8:30 pm at First Presbyterian Church, 315 N. Cayuga St, Ithaca
Free & open to all; Free dinner provided!
This community forum will start at 6 PM with an Ethiopian Dinner prepared by Addisu Gebre who is involved with the Cooperative Extension Food Entrepreneur Network. At 6:30 PM, keynote speaker Mike Hoffman, Director of the Cornell Institute for Climate Smart Solutions, will speak on the implications of climate on food production and what is likely to change. Evidence is all around us that it is getting warmer and that there are more extreme precipitation events having an impact on production. These anticipated changes and greater variability in the weather will make it more challenging for those who grow our food, locally to globally. After the presentation, the audience will be invited to brainstorm ideas for increasing food security in our community given the climate change trends.
