Farmer Climate Forums: Whole-Farm Water Management
March 23 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pmFREE
MOFGA and NOFA-VT invite you to join other farmers from Maine and Vermont for a series of forums focused on water, including management, systems, and adaptation strategies for making it through times of drought and excess precipitation. Each session will begin with a short 30 minute presentation by a guest speaker. We will then move into a facilitated farmer-to-farmer discussion on the topic.
Join us for a discussion with Dr. Joshua Faulkner focused on water management throughout your whole farm system. How does topography and soils affect management decisions? How do we utilize natural and manmade features in our farm landscape to effectively manage through times of too much and too little water? After a 30 minute presentation, Joshua will facilitate a farmer-to-farmer discussion on these topics. Come to listen, share your own experiences, ask questions, troubleshoot and be inspired about new systems that may make your own farm more climate resilient! Dr. Joshua Faulkner coordinates the Farming and Climate Change Program in the UVM Extension Center for Sustainable Agriculture. His research and farmer support focuses on soil, water and nutrient-related issues, as well as climate change adaptation.
This event is part one of a three part series. Learn more about the Farmer Climate Forum series.
