The Vital Communities “Climate Farmers Stories” project at Billings Farm features 26 original artworks, educational panels, and quotes from local artists to promote climate resiliency measures.

WOODSTOCK—This thought-provoking exhibition of 26 original artworks from the Vital Communities “Climate Farmers Stories” project will be displayed in Billings Farm’s Historic Barn from April 4 – June 23. 

Through portraits in paint, print, fiber, and digital media, the works highlight the resiliency, creativity, and problem-solving abilities of farmers in the Upper Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire. Each portrait is intentionally crafted by local artists to connect viewers with climate farmers. 

The artwork, along with educational panels and quotes from artists and farmers, help convey both the problems and solutions that climate change presents and provides an important platform for raising awareness. 

The exhibition will continue outdoors where guests will find examples of approaches to improve climate resiliency at Billings Farm.  A few of the methods include rotational grazing of the dairy herd, solar panel usage, low or no-till fields with organic-only fertilizers.

This collaboration between Vital Communities and Billings Farm & Museum provides accessible ways for individuals to take meaningful action to help farms address climate change.
