Idaho Farming: Challenges in a Warming Climate
Action to Save Our Planet: An Active Virtual Forum via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/9828075151
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2020, 19 AM — 11 AM PT
The Boise Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) and the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (BUUF) invite you to a forum on the state of Idaho farming as we face challenges in a warming climate.
Keynote Speaker: John O’Connor will share his extensive knowledge and experience gained in 45 years of farming in Idaho, including as a farm owner and manager, organic crop inspector, and project leader for a $10,000 S.A.R.E.’ grant.
Some considerations we will explore:
- How have weather patterns in Idaho changed over the last 30 years, and how has irrigation been affected?
- What economic consequences from changes in climate have already occurred, and what consequences do we anticipate?
- How does the current farm model compare with past models?
- How can new patterns of farming help adapt to climate change, especially concerning energy use, inputs, and tillage?
- Finally, a call to ACTION
