The session will build on the successful intensive offered last year with a similar topic, and will include themed “resilience stations" exploring on-farm best management practices, monitoring for adaptive management, financial planning, policy incentives,and personal care. As a participant, you will be asked to bring your farm maps and other information to the session where you will develop an individualized “climate change resilience action plan.”
