Panel Discussion

A group of farmers and naturalists from our region will talk about their farming practices, philosophy, ethics, business models, challenges and their optimism for this next generation who are embracing working closely with the land. Many on the panel are also visual artists and the presentation will exhibit their photography focused on their work. This session will also feature the opportunity for a Q&A and networking.

The panel features:
Alec Gioseffi, Adam Martin and Lauren Nagy, Cooperative 518; Lindsay Napolitano and Johann Rinkens, Fields Without Fences; Jared Rosenbaum and Rachel Mackow, Wild Ridge Plants, Growers and Stewards of Native Plants; and Steve Tomlinson, farmer at Great Road Farm.

Jared Flesher, documentary filmmaker and Edible Jersey editor will be the moderator of the panel. Jared is an award-winning reporter, photojournalist and documentary filmmaker, with a focus on the topics of energy, agriculture and ecology. His last two documentaries are “The Farmer and the Horse” (2010) and “Sourlands (2012.) His latest film “Field Biologist” is in production will be released later in 2014.

We have finished our last market and now we begin our hibernation for the winter. It has been an amazing year with some ups and downs. A few mishaps in the greenhouse led to not planting everything intended, however the crew pulled through and we made it up with consistent hard work. We completed our first season for our CSA and our relationship with Agricola is growing and evolving. Every year I try and take on a little more, improve what I have done in the past, and make sure I am building the foundation of a healthy ecosystem for our workers and the larger community. It was our first year at West Windsor Community Farmers Market and we really enjoyed being able to interact with our community directly. Now we will attend a few Farmers Conferences and sharpen our skills for next year. Crop planning, big ideas, season summaries, and field maps will be worked on and we will be ready to go, with baby Van on our back,  next spring.
