October 2022 Climate Resilience Training for Oregon Ag Professionals

Workshop Wednesdays:

Expand Your Toolbox for Oregon Growers

 

9:30-11:30am - 10/05, 10/12, 10/19, and 10/26

FREE! Remote & LIVE! 

Zoom Registration Coming Soon. 

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. 

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 

Supported by: 

Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Oregon Professional Development Program (WSARE PDP)
