Get Your ‘Climate-Smart’ Questions Answered

Edge Dairy Farmer Cooperative and Farmers for Sustainable Food will present a Climate-Smart informational webinar on March 12 from 11-11:30 a.m.

The webinar will provide insight into the group’s multi-year USDA Partnership for Climate-Smart Commodities Program after recently announcing that the program is accepting farmer enrollment.

FSF’s Managing Director Lauren Brey will share program details and how farmers can participate and earn financial compensation.

The Farmers for Sustainable Food Climate-Smart Program uses data to inform how farming practices can potentially generate added value for the food the farms produce. It is grounded in FSF’s Framework for Farm-Level Sustainability Projects, a nationally recognized, proven model that has been the foundation of several multi-year sustainability projects across two states.

“The FSF Climate-Smart Program is unlike many others because we are not requiring farmers to implement any specific practice changes,” Brey said. “We provide farmers with the necessary tools and resources to help guide them in their management decisions and adopt sustainable practices that are right for their farms.”

Two projects were launched earlier this year as part of the program. The first farmer payment was issued last month.
