This workshop will focus on how climate change and industrial agriculture have created a perfect storm for pollinators, triggering the risk of food chain collapse. The solutions to this dilemma come from practices that farmers and orchard keepers are already innovating, including planting insectary, forming hedgerows in and near fields to create alley cropping, or pollinator-friendly forages beneath low-chill fruit and nut trees.
Gary Nabhan is an orchard keeper, sustainable agriculture research and agrarian activist, with more than 25 books to his credit. He has been honored by the MacArthur Foundation, and by Utne Reader, which in 2011 named him as being among 25 visionaries changing the world.
