A huge thank you to our panelists and special guests sharing their expertise. Deborah Aller, Agricultural Stewardship Specialist, Soil Scientist, Cornell Cooperative Extension, Christopher Gobler, Chair of Coastal Ecology + Conservation, and Professor School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, Stony Brook University, Mimi Edelman, owner i&me farm, leader with Slow Food East End, Edwina Von Gal, author, founder of the Perfect Earth Project and 2/3 for The Birds, and special guests Laurie and Bill Benenson, producers, Kiss the Ground.

We asked the panelists to give us some advice on what we can all do to help transition our East End to a regenerative food system and economy: Talk About It, Buy Local through Farmstands and Oystergrowers, Use the Power of Your Purse, Know your Farmer, Know your Landscaper, Know your Park (and ask what are you putting on the soil and why? There is a suite of regenerative practices that enrich soil with no chemicals!)
