Nature Hour: Trees, Farming, Regeneration and Climate
Join us as we learn more about how an old approach to agriculture can help with current environmental issues.
About This Event
In this Nature Hour, we will explore how an old, and newly re-appreciated, approach to agriculture can be a huge help with many of the intertwined environmental, health and weather crises that we face as a planet today. We’ll take a deep look at diverse and regenerative farmscapes- and the many tree based crops we can grow for healthier farms, waters and farmers.
