CISA’s annual Climate Change and Farming Week is an opportunity for CISA, farmers, allied organizations, and individuals to host events that build awareness of and support for local food and farm businesses as they seek solutions to the many challenges of growing food in a warmer, wetter New England. Climate Change and Farming Week is held annually in September, in conjunction with nationwide Climate Week events and the UN General Assembly meetings in New York. This collaborative event series seeks to celebrate climate resiliency and facilitate stronger and broader relationships between our food system’s stakeholders through learning and adapting together.
CISA’s 2023 Climate Change and Farming Week included nine events organized by over 20 local farms and organizations. Events included a farmer panel discussing impacts of climate on their businesses, on-farm presentations about low-till practices and composting, a native plant sale, a climate grant showcase, and more!
We are now planning for our third annual Climate Change and Farming Week, September 22-28, 2024, and invite new and returning organizers to join us as event hosts! Please contact Stephen Taranto to discuss your ideas for next year’s events, or submit your event through our form here.
