Webinar Series: Digging In
February 24, 2021
Digging In - A webinar series on food and farmland in Lancaster County
Join us on YouTube for a year-long series of conversations with the folks who have a hand – literally – in Lancaster County's food and farming system.
Each webinar will include a 15-20 minute documentary-style video, followed by a post-screening, live Q&A with LFT staff and an individual or two from the video. The videos will premiere on YouTube at noon on the dates below, immediately followed by the interactive Q&A. Both links will be provided to registrants prior to the dates below.
February 24 – Farm to Shelf: We’ll follow two eggs through the food system – one from its start on a commercial farm in Lancaster County, to its final destination on a retail shelf near you; the other on a small scale farm that sells direct-to-consumer. What does it take to create America’s favorite breakfast staple? Tune in to find out.
April 28 – Cleaner Streams with Cows: Local farmers are taking action to improve local stream quality, and the health of the Chesapeake Bay. Drive down some farm lanes with us to find out what conservation looks like on working farms and hear directly from farmers in your community.
July 28 – Farm to Restaurant: Five-star dining with a field’s edge view – Lancaster County is home to both. Join us on a tour of local farms and restaurants that have formed a bond over better food through fresher ingredients.
September 22 – Handing Over the Farm: Succession planning is essential to any business, especially a family-run farm. We’ll talk with one local farmer about the transition of their farm and how they ensured the family farm stayed in-tact.
November 19 (ExtraGive) – Horsepower: Lancaster County is home to a world leader in the field of agricultural machinery, and is known for our more traditional horse-drawn equipment. We’ll take a look back at the evolution of farm machinery and how some Lancaster County farmers use “horsepower” to grow our food.
