Tompkins Ag Summit to feature Agency Updates

(Ithaca, NY) Farmers, rural landowners, and local government officials are invited to attend the 2021 Tompkins County Agriculture Summit to hear updates from agencies whose work funds, supports or impacts our area’s agriculture and rural communities. Presenters at this year’s summit include representatives from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, USDA Farm Service Agency, New York State Dept. of Agriculture & Markets, Tompkins County Soil & Water Conservation District, Cornell Cooperative Extension Tompkins County (CCETC) and the Tompkins County Health Department.

Presenters will discuss changes to their programs due to Covid-19, including decreases or shifts in funding availability and new programs meant to serve the agricultural community during the pandemic. Many farm support programs continue despite it all, and presenters will go over those programs as well. Graham Savio, Agriculture Team Leader at CCETC, will share an introductory overview of a ‘Payment for Ecosystem Services’ (PES) pilot program under development through CCETC and a number of community partners. A presenter from the County Health Department will give an update on the state of the Covid vaccine rollout for farmers and farmworkers. Finally, there will be an opportunity for farmers to provide input about programming and resources being developed around solar development.

The Town of Danby sits on the traditional & ancestral land of the Gayogoho:no’ (Cayuga Nation), one of the five nations to first form the Haudenosaunee. Indigenous peoples were largely forced out of Upstate New York by the Sullivan-Clinton Expedition in 1779. The land that would become the Town of Danby was a part of the Watkins and Flint Purchase, a 336,380 acre patent granted by New York State to numerous eastern investors in 1794.
