Organic agriculture plays an important role as a solution to the climate change crisis. Science demonstrates that organic farming reduces greenhouse gas emissions, builds soil health and sequesters carbon, and fosters resilience to droughts, floods, and other extreme weather conditions. Identifying how fundamental organic practices like cover cropping and crop rotation help to create healthy soils will help to acknowledge the contribution organic producers play in this important fight to mitigate our changing climate.
With funding from a 2020 Specialty Crop Block Grant, Vital Communities partnered with Vermont Organic Farmers and NOFA-VT in 2021 to educate consumers about the important role Vermont organic farmers play in addressing climate change.
Now we want to know: Did the project help people understand and embrace that connection in Vermont? Farmers and consumers, please take this brief survey to engage in this important topic! We thank you in advance for your help!
