Local Food Abundance NC’s 3rd Annual Climate Change Adaptation Conference Thu Feb 5- Sat Feb 7, 2015 (All Day Event) — 4 days away

Abundance NC’s 3rd Annual Climate Change Adaptation Conference will be held February 5th-6th, 2015 in Pittsboro, NC. The keynote speaker for the conference is Peter Bane, renowned Permaculture activist.

The Climate Change Adaptation Conference for Farmers grew out of a need for education and support of our local farmers, who have been in distress due to the extreme weather challenges they’ve been facing in the last several years. This was an innovative and first of its kind conference that draws powerful speakers and has sold out each year.

Registration for the full-day Conference on Friday is only $25 for farmers and students, and $35 for researchers and activists until January 30th.

The pre-conference “Amuse Bouche” on February 5th, the night before the conference, is open to the public, and tickets are only $5 in advance and $10 at the door. Appetizers and drinks followed by a panel discussion about climate adaptation efforts around the world at the community scale.
