Climate-Resilient Agriculture Initiative Featured at the Glynwood Climate Convening

Headed to the Hudson Valley later this week to release the results of a year-long project led by Cultivating Resilience, LLC and funded by Scenic Hudson that explored the potential for land conservation organizations to promote climate resilience through voluntary conservation incentives:  The Climate-Resilient Agriculture Initiative.

I’ll open the day-long workshop by sharing results from the Initiative, and will help facilitate a discussion about practical pathways to a climate-resilient Hudson Valley agriculture.  Check out more about the workshop here

Scenic Hudson has long been considered a leader in safeguarding the Hudson Valley’s irreplaceable landscapes — including the region’s productive family farms — while advancing balanced and sustainable development, and protecting our land, air and water from pollution and other threats.

Cultivating Climate Resilience on Farms and Ranches: A Review

Cultivating Climate Resilience on Farms and Ranches: A Review

Thanks to Gabrielle Roesch-McNally, USDA Pacific Northwest Climate Hub Fellow, for this review of my SARE bulletin. 

USDA SARE (Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education) recently published a new resource for land managers and those who advise them titled, “Cultivating Climate Resilience on Farms and Ranches.” This resource outlines some of the challenges that farmers and ranchers will face as climate change leads to more extreme and variable weather. While the resource is national in scope, there is a great table that briefly explores the observed and expected changes in weather across seven U.S. regions, including the Northwest.”
