Growing Food and Ornamentals in a Changing Climate

Title

Growing Food and Ornamentals in a Changing Climate

Description

This program was 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.

Presenters Haley Jean and Sara Keleman, M.S. students at the University of Maine School of Food and Agriculture, gave an overview of global climate change, with special attention to effects in Maine and the Northeast. They discussed 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 suggested ways to mitigate some of the more confounding challenges. The talk also showcased tools for learning about, understanding, and addressing climate change impacts.
