Adapting to Climate Change on Diversified Farms Part 1

Wednesday, November 28, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM   

Farmers are on the front lines of dealing with the impacts of changing climatic trends and extreme weather. This session will explore results from a regional survey conducted last year which highlights how vegetable and berry growers across the Northeastern US and Eastern Canada are adapting to the impacts of increasingly extreme weather. Join us to look at how site characteristics influence the strategies that farmers are using to manage for drought and heavy precipitation. The workshop will close with discussions about the most innovative and promising ideas from growers across the region. Stick around for Part 2, a farmer-to-farmer session to dive deeper, share your own experiences, and learn from your peers.
