Can Food Production and a Clean Chesapeake Bay Coexist? A panel discussion between farmers, environmentalists and the public

Date: 6:30pm EST February 25, 2016

We all want clean water and vibrant rivers. We all need food to survive, but farming practices are often blamed for the deterioration of the Chesapeake Bay. Can we have both?

Join us for a panel discussion between farmers, environmentalists, and local residents about challenges and successes in the effort to achieve a healthier Chesapeake Bay while continuing to produce food. 

The discussion will be driven by questions from the audience and will moderated by: Hon. Wayne Gilchrest - Education Programs Director, Sassafras Environmental Education Center

Co-hosted by the Sassafras River Association and the Chester River Association, in coordination with the Center for Environment & Society at Washington College, this event is free and open to the public. 

Come be a part of this important conversation!
