All farmers, farm-related businesses, technical service providers, farmer support groups and organizations, conservation districts and others are encouraged to attend.   

 The members of the Agriculture and Ecosystem Subcommittee of the Vermont Climate Council will share:

o  The strategies for helping Vermont farms and food system to be more resilient and adaptable in the face of climate change impacts;

o  The ways Vermont agriculture can play an essential role in storing and sequestering carbon; and,

o  The many co-benefits climate action can take for farm viability, healthy soils, increased biodiversity, water quality, and many others.

 

The Subcommittee hopes to hear from you:

What two or three strategies are you excited about and would be highly effective?

What key strategies or ideas are missing?

What two or three strategies or ideas are of concern or worry to you?  And, how would you improve them to address you concerns?

What help do you need to make the strategies relevant to you to be implemented?
