Winter climate resilience workshops for fruit and vegetable growers

Extension is partnering with the Land Stewardship Project this winter for a series of climate resilience trainings. We're offering a range of formats including a short webinar, a one time in-person training, and a more in-depth cohort program.  

Online Farmer Forum: Exploring Water Management on Vegetable Farms

Join Jody and Mike Lenz of Threshing Table Farm and Dana Swanson from NRCS to
explore creative ways to manage water in our changing climate. This forum will include
a short presentation followed by questions, ideas and solutions from attendees.

In-Person Training: Introduction to Climate Resilience for Farmers

Join LSP and UMN Extension to build resilience on your farm through examining local
climate trends, identifying risk and planning adaptations for mitigation. Additionally,
there will be several farmers presenting on the climate resilience strategies they are
implementing on their farms. Lunch is included and registration is required.

Whole Farm Planning For Climate Change

Climate change is making our farms and our farm planning more unpredictable. It is
becoming increasingly important to address climate change considerations in our land
management planning and decision-making. This winter, join the Land Stewardship
Project and UMN Extension for a three-part training series targeted to specialty crop
growers. Through this series, you will be guided through a process of Whole Farm Planning for
Climate Resilience in order to:

  • Learn more about the potential impacts of increasing climate variability and change on your agricultural operation.
  • Evaluate climate risk management options that best support your farm and family goals by reducing risks and capturing new opportunities associated with changing climate conditions.
  • Make a plan to implement selected climate resilience strategies and evaluate their effectiveness over time.
