Sustainable Agriculture Tour Wednesday In Genesee

Sustainable Agriculture Tour Wednesday In Genesee

August 9th, 2013
pasafarmtourAn organization that’s committed to promoting a new approach to agriculture is planning an outreach event in Potter County this month. Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) welcomes producers, policy-makers and others with an interest in farming to attend an information session at Blue Marble Farm in Genesee Township from 1-4 pm on Wednesday, Aug. 21. Owners Lisa and Jeff Werner, who are PASA members, will demonstrate their growing techniques and discuss their involvement with community-supported agriculture. Information will also be presented on growing heirloom tomatoes in Potter County’s short season. Those planning to attend are asked to register by calling Michele Gauger at 814-349-9856, extension 17.

PASA’s mission is to bring farmers together to learn from each other, and to build relationships with consumers looking for fresh, wholesome, locally and sustainably produced food. “We seek to improve the economic viability, environmental soundness and social responsibility of food and farming systems,” Gauger explained. “We place great value on efforts to build bridges between broadly diverse participants in the agricultural industry.” PASA grew out of the need to bring together those interested in non-traditional agricultural practices, such as organic, biodynamic and grass-based farming, as well as the desire to create local markets.
