In cooperation with the 

Farming With Climate Change

As Earth’s climate changes, farmers are facing increasingly unpredictable weather conditions and more frequent extreme weather events. Farmers will need to gather resources, create support networks and develop strategies to manage under new climatic conditions.

Regenerative farming practices have the potential to ameliorate environmental impacts and make farming systems more resilient to extreme and variable weather. Regenerative practices also have the potential to sequester carbon and change agriculture from one the greatest emitters of carbon to one of the solutions to long-term climate change.

Prior to the class, we will share a link for the film “Kiss the Ground”, which explores many regenerative practices through conversations with farmers who are using them.  Participants should view the film at their own convenience. We recommend viewing the film shortly before the discussion forum so points of the film will be fresh in your mind. The group will the convene for the virtual forum made of farmers, and those of us who support them, to discuss farming practices that will make them more resilient to climate change.
