Organic farmer will present SLU sustainable agriculture lecture


CANTON — Brian Bennett of Bittersweet Farm, Heuvelton, will present Food for Thought, a Sustainable Agriculture Lecture from 7 to 8:30 p.m. March 26 in Hepurn Hall 218, St. Lawrence University campus.

Mr. Bennett was named the New York Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA NY) 2014 farmer of the year. For almost a decade Bittersweet Farm has supported St. Lawrence University students learning about the principles and practicing the skills of sustainable agriculture and community building.

The Center for Civic Engagement, North Country Folk Series and the Sustainability Semester are excited to bring Mr. Bennett to campus to share the keynote speech he gave at the NOFA NY winter conference in January.

In 50 minutes he tells, and shows, the story of his farm and his relationship to the land and community, including many heartwarming and hilarious experiences he has shared with students.

This event is free and open to the public.

Community members can locate Hepburn as number 40 on the campus map and should park in F-lot, accessed by taking a right off of Park Street (coming from town) onto Lincoln Street, followed by the first left into the parking lot.
