Growing Food and Ornamentals in a Changing Climate with Haley Jean and Sara Keleman
February 22, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
This program is the second in the Belfast Garden Club’s Evening Lecture Series co-sponsored by the All of Belfast Climate Dialogues, a project of the Belfast Free Library:
This presentation will give an overview of global climate change, with special attention to effects in Maine and the Northeast. Haley and Sara will discuss the local effects of global weather patterns and the challenges that they may pose to those who grow vegetables, fruit, and flowers in our region, and will suggest ways to mitigate some of the more confounding challenges. The talk will also showcase tools for learning about, understanding, and addressing climate change impacts.
Haley Jean and Sara Keleman are M.S. students at the University of Maine School of Food and Agriculture.
