Webinar: Quantifying the Potential to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Increase Carbon Sequestration by Growing and Marketing Climate-Smart Commodities in the Southern Piedmont

February 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

Designing and implementing a new large-scale system of agriculture such as Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) takes an interdisciplinary approach that includes farmer adoption, understanding economic and social barriers to adoption, market and consumer buy-in, new technology to help ease the work and burden on the farmers, and the science to back up these changes. Join Dr. Kristie Wendelberger, Climate Smart Project Director, as she discusses Rodale’s newest, multi-disciplinary, large-scale project intended to help Southern Piedmont farmers transition to CSA practices.

This $25million project is funded through the USDA Climate Smart Commodities grant program and in partnership with Emory University, Clemson University, University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture, University of Georgia, North Carolina State University, North Carolina Agriculture and Technical State University, University of Wisconsin, Soil Health Institute, Georgia Organics, Carolina Farm Stewardship Association, and Virginia Association of Biological Farming.
