Climate Adaptation: Preparing Farms, Communities, & Bioregions for Climate Change

By observing and mimicking ecosystem processes, our farms and landscapes can be designed to be resilient to climatic changes. This interactive workshop will explore ecological design principles and solutions for climate adaptation in the Northeast US, including on-farm water management, crop and landscape biodiversity, productive buffers and corridors, and trialing new warmer-climate crops for the region.
