Environmental stewardship of farmers around the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays has made them leaders in practices that protect healthy soils and safeguard working lands against climate change. This film follows three different family-owned farming operations on the Delmarva Peninsula who care about and depend on soil.
The after-show panel discussion will feature Kasey Taylor, state conservationist, U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service; Rose Ogutu, horticulture specialist, Delaware State University; and Karrah Kwasnik, filmmaker, U.S. Department of Agriculture Northeast Climate Hub.
