Do you support local food systems? Do you believe in regenerative agriculture, organic farming, and sustainable agroforestry and permaculture practices?
If you do, come join the Virginia Association for Biological Farming and Virginia Tech’s Office of Outreach and International Affairs for a locally sourced banquet celebrating these values and approaches, and the farmers, forest owners, and stakeholders who use and support them. Learn about the association and the work Virginia Tech is up to at the Catawba Sustainability Center. Also, be inspired by Keefe Keeley, noted agroforestry advocate and researcher at the Savanna Institute. During his talk titled “We do not farm for bread alone: Making a living and a livable world with agroforestry”, Keefe will share insights, perspectives, and stories of farmers putting agroforestry and other regenerative practices to use for the betterment of farms, forests, communities, and our environment. By attending this dinner, you will learn about all that is going on to help advance regenerative agriculture in Virginia and beyond, and contribute to the work of organizations such as the Virginia Association for Biological Farming.
