Some statistics suggest that a quarter of global greenhouse emissions come from agriculture. But what does climate change mean for farmers here in Washington? To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, PCC Farmland Trust presents national bestselling authors and mother-daughter duo Frances Moore Lappé and Anna Lappé, who bring a multi-generational perspective on the environment, the climate crisis, and our food system. Frances and Anna are joined by a panel of local farmers who share real stories about the impact of climate change on farmland and the ways they are working to mitigate and adapt. Come together to honor the power of soil and the knowledge of farmers as one answer to Washington’s low-carbon, resilient future.

Featured farmers:

Elizabeth Bragg of Long Hearing Farm
David Haakenson of Jubilee Farm
Samantha Alvarez of Alvarez Organic Farms
Linda Neunzig of Ninety Farms
Andy Wilcox of Wilcox Family Farms

The conversation will be moderated by KNKX Environment Reporter Bellamy Pailthorp. 

Presented by Town Hall Seattle and PCC Farmland Trust.
