Be inspired all year by the Climate Farmers 2023 wall calendar – a celebration of farmers whose practices draw down carbon, nurture healthy, resilient soils, and build food security in the Upper Valley of VT and NH, with portraits by Vermont and New Hampshire artists.
Climate change is a growing threat to the survival of Upper Valley farms and the communities that rely on them. Upper Valley farmers, always focused on feeding their community, are responding with a range of farming techniques, educational efforts, and political advocacy.
To draw attention to the farmers using these regenerative practices, Vital Communities’ Climate Farmer Stories project commissioned seven local artists to make portraits of 13 local farmers. The resulting portraits of the farmers speak about the strength, dedication, fellowship, and connection to the land, animals, and people these farmers embody. See the portraits and learn about the farms here.
These 13 portraits now have been brought together in a calendar along with vivid and concise descriptions of carbon-reducing techniques for farming as well as home gardening and lawn care. The calendar was designed by Tunbridge, VT, artist Cecily Anderson, who created several of the portraits and is helping to run the Climate Farmer Stories project.
