John Deere: A Discussion of the History and Future of Agriculture

Saturday, September 9

Historian, author, and actor Brian “Fox” Ellis, in character as John Deere, will cover a century of agricultural history and then lead a discussion on the future of farming. Raising issues such the pros and cons of agriculture versus agribusiness, the roles of technology and mechanization, and the significance of small family farms, centennial farms, and community-supported agriculture, this program promises to engage the audience in a complex conversation about the directions that our ongoing efforts to feed the world might take. Turning the conventional question-and-answer session format on its head, a substantial portion of this presentation will consist of John Deere asking the members of the audience questions about their family roots in agriculture and where they think the future will lead us.

Reservations are recommended.
