Unlocking the Potential of Diversified Farming: Exploring Benefits And Overcoming Barriers
March 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pmFree
Diversified, small-scale and organic farming has the potential to support biodiversity on farmlands and increase farmer livelihoods.
But transitioning to these systems can be challenging, especially for the small-scale growers who could have the most to gain from the transition. So how can growers overcome obstacles like organic certification, food safety regulations and supply chain barriers that often hold them back?
Join us on March 23, for a virtual panel discussion and Q&A where our expert panelists will share firsthand experiences of the challenges farmers face. Learn more about the ecological and socioeconomic benefits of diversified agricultural systems and explore how policies and direct actions can make the transition to these systems easier.
