With spring - and the growing season - just around the corner, we are delighted to welcome Hudson Valley author Amy Wu to our stage. Amy will read excerpts from her book From Farms to Incubators: Women Innovators Revolutionizing How Our Food is Grown, and discuss her journey in building the storytelling initiative from documentary to book.

David Kirkpatrick, the founder of editor in chief of Techonomy Media, says of the book: “From Farms to Incubators takes us inside the lives and careers of many inspiring women innovators. You will never think of food and farms the same way again.”

Join us for this provocative look inside our food systems and the future for women in agtech. We will have copies of Amy’s book on hand for purchase and signing. This event is free, but we ask you to RSVP here for planning purposes.
