Building Bridges: Climate, Agriculture and Justice

The  climate crisis  has wide-ranging implications and challenges, not only for farmers but also for economically disadvantaged communities, where people often have greater exposure to air and water pollution and limited access to healthy affordable food. As water shortages, extreme weather events and other climate changes reduce food production and drive up food costs, these challenges will be heightened. Fortunately, organic and sustainable agriculture methods can provide climate benefits, making farms more resilient. These practices also improve air and water quality and the health of agricultural communities. Advocates of sustainable agriculture and environmental justice have a lot to gain by combining forces in search of win-win solutions. Join us for a wide-ranging conversation that bridges these perspectives.
