Train the Trainer


Train the Trainer Program for Oregon Agricultural Professionals 

A Climate Resilience Toolbox

for Oregon Farmers and Ranchers


FREE! Remote & LIVE! 


  • 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. 



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


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.



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.
