Thanks to the generous support of the Ida and Robert Gordon Family Foundation, the Organic Seed Alliance has been able to hold a 2-webinar series on dry farming.
During the first webinar, Dry Farming and Other Strategies for Climate Resilience: Voices From the South, we had the opportunity to listen to the perspectives of the University of California Professor Clara Nichols.
The second webinar, Dry Farming and Other Strategies for Climate Resilience: Drought and Heat in the West, featured the work of DeAnndra Porter and Joel Johnson from Native Seeds/SEARCH with Lucas Nebert from the Oregon State University Dry Farming Project.
In both webinars, over a hundred people registered, and live sessions were highly attended with vivid discussions. We felt the interest of experienced and beginning farmers in the topic, and of representatives from the academic, business, and non-profit sectors as well. We hope these materials are useful for many of you. For us in the Organic Seed Alliance, it is an honor to have the opportunity to co-create spaces of discussion and learning with such talented farmers and researchers. We envision Organic Seed and Organic Farmers as protagonists in constructing a more resilient and equitable food system.
