Cultivating Resiliency through Intergenerational Collaboration: Tour of Organic Greenhouse, Straw Bale House, and Farmer Panel

September 28 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Roll on over for a free field day with Denise O’Brien and her husband, Larry Harris, at Rolling Acres Farm in Atlantic on Saturday, September 28 from noon to 3 p.m.

This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to explore an organic farm and greenhouse, tour a newly constructed, carbon-neutral straw bale house, and learn about the benefits of cultivating resilient organic farming communities.

True to their dedication to intergenerational resiliency, Denise and Larry recently built a straw bale house to help provide more living space at the farm as they welcome their children and grandchildren onto the farm. Tour the straw bale house and learn about the project from the lead contractor, Jim Schalles.

During the program, Denise and members of her community will engage conversations with participants about process of transitioning and operating an organic farm and greenhouse, opportunities for intergenerational collaboration, and challenges and tools to address climate change.
