Podcasts, Video, Discussion Groups, and Forums

We are all learning about how to adapt farming and food systems to climate change in different ways and in addition to websites there is a vast world of podcasts, videos and discussion groups that share knowledge and experiences with farm adaptation in our region and around the world.
