Scott Chaskey: Readings from a South Fork Author, Poet and Farmer

Updated: Feb 7

Scott Chaskey is a poet, farmer, and educator. For 30 years he cultivated garlic, greens, potatoes, and sixty other crops for the Peconic Land Trust at Quail Hill Farm in Amagansett, one of the original CSA’s in the country. A pioneer of the Community Supported Agriculture movement, he is past president of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York, and was honored as Farmer of the Year in 2013. "Seedtime," by Scott Chaskey, has been called "a celebration as well as a call to action urging us to renew our role as citizens of nature, in Aldo Leopold's phrase, not as conquerors of it." For this presentation Scott will also read from his work-in-progress, Soil and Spirit, to be published by Milkweed Editions, in 2022.
