Thank you to everyone who joined us this past Sunday, August 1, for our virtual Through Farms and Fields.

We missed breaking bread with you this year, but are grateful for the community’s unwavering support of the Trust and conservation on Long Island — and we enjoyed sharing with you a little about the Trust’s Farms for the Future Initiative on Zoom.

Weren’t able to join us on Sunday? Or, want to watch it again? We’ve saved an archive of the program here:
