“Climate Stressors and Solutions: Your Land, Your Leadership” - Women for the Land Virtual Learning Circle


American Farmland Trust, a national leader in protecting agricultural land, promoting environmentally sound farming practices and keeping farmers on the land, has announced a two-part “Women for the Land Virtual Learning Circle” for people who identify as women and are stewards of agricultural land in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Ventura Counties.  The virtual event will be held on Aug. 5 and Aug. 12, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., via Zoom. 

Focused on “Climate Stressors and Solutions: Your Land, Your Leadership,” the AFT Learning Circle will connect women in agriculture so they can share climate change-related stressors they are experiencing and learn about the latest research and technical resources available on regenerative agriculture approaches.
