Train the Trainer

 

Train the Trainer Program for Oregon Agricultural Professionals 

A Climate Resilience Toolbox

for Oregon Farmers and Ranchers

 NOVEMBER 2-4th, 2021

10am-Noon and 1-3pm each day 

FREE! Remote & LIVE! 

Goals:

  • Provide an interactive training for Oregon agricultural professionals to advance knowledge of farm-based solutions for climate resilience.  These solutions reduce risks from extreme weather events, store more carbon in the soil and work for a farmer’s bottom-line.

  • Create a community of practice in Oregon dedicated to supporting, improving, and better understanding farming and ranching for climate resilience in Oregon. 

 

Objective:

Increase knowledge of technical service providers, farm advisors, and researchers to better support growers in their transition to farming for climate resilience. 

WHO:

Our primary audience is agricultural technical service providers, farm advisors and researchers throughout Oregon. For example: OSU Extension, Soil and Water Conservation Districts, Oregon Natural Resource Conservation Service, Watershed Councils, Land Trusts, researchers, non-profits, and agricultural education providers.

 

WHAT:

A series of virtual trainings to increase knowledge of technical service providers to support growers in their efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change 

  • 6 virtual sessions, November 2-4 2021 from 10am-Noon and 1:00-3:00pm pacific time each day

  • We developed the content in coordination with  our planning committee including input from: 

    • grant advisory committee,

    • a survey of ag professionals in Oregon, and

    • models across the US.
