Farm Climate Smart WI, a new collaborative project with the goal of empowering Northeast Wisconsin farmers to implement climate-smart agriculture practices, is set to host an educational event at the Oshkosh Food Co-Op on March 25, 2024 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.
The event, Growing Climate Smart Agriculture in Northeast Wisconsin, will feature a meet and greet with Wisconsin Farmers Union, a presentation about climate-smart agriculture and the new Farm Climate Smart WI project, and a Q&A session. This event is free, family friendly, and open to the public. Register at wisconsinfarmersunion.com/fsc-wi-events.
The Farm Climate Smart WI project will support farmers by connecting them to innovative tools, knowledge, and resources that help them to remain resilient in the face of climate and market changes. Wisconsin Farmers Union is specifically working with small, mid-sized, and underserved farmers that are interested in employing climate-smart practices by organizing and convening events, conducting regional outreach, peer education, and networking between farmers.
Farm Climate Smart WI is a project of the Fox-Wolf Watershed Alliance in partnership with Wisconsin Farmers Union, Pheasants Forever, Outagamie County, and Utah State University, and is made possible through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities program.
