Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture launched the Kirschenmann Lecture in 2015 in honor of trail-blazing sustainable farming leader Fred Kirschenmann, our Board president.
The annual lecture is dedicated to exploring ideas and issues important to the future of food and agriculture, and celebrates Fred’s work and influence on sustainable agriculture.
The 2018 Kirschenmann Lecture was delivered by Congresswoman Chellie Pingree, U.S. Representative for 1st District of Maine, on May 14.
The 2017 Kirschenmann Lecture was given by Ricardo Salvador, senior scientist and director of the Food and Environment Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists, a nonprofit science advocacy organization. Watch a video of his talk here.
