The Future of Farming on Land and at Sea

Last weekend the Schumacher Center held the 35th Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures at the beautiful Churchtown Dairy— a new raw milk dairy just outside of Hudson, NY.

This year’s speakers, Allan Savory of the Savory Institute and Bren Smith of GreenWave, continued a long tradition of thoughtfully crafted talks on building the social, cultural, and ecological underpinnings for a new economy. Both called for revolutionary approaches to managing the earth’s resources, whether on land or at sea. And both saw the importance of doing so within new economic frameworks, ensuring that the future of farming benefits us all.

We will be sharing recordings from the lectures in the next couple of weeks, so please keep an eye on your inbox. While you’re waiting, you can read an article about Bren Smith in this week’s New Yorker.

Or you could read, listen to, or watch any of the past 34 years of Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures on our website. The lectures are also edited and published as pamphlets for those who like to hold the printed word in hand. The pamphlets make great gifts at $5 each. Postage is free in the US and gift cards can be included upon request.
