CalCAN is a great resource for learning about climate change related to agriculture, and steps we can all take to work together. http://calclimateag.org/blog/
Here are a couple of examples:
Tracking the farm bill (you can read more on their website blog):
|Congressmen Jim Costa and Dennis Cardoza, Central Valley Democrats, held a farm bill forum on April 28 in Fresno, California. This forum came on the heels of the Senate Agriculture Committee passing its 2012 Farm Bill out of committee and the House Agriculture Committee beginning its hearings on the bill. Without passage of a farm bill in 2012, key programs that support sustainable, rural communities and healthy food may be in jeopardy of deep cuts.|
"CA Climate Policies Help Farms" is a video on CalCAN's website about Strauss Dairy and their efforts to conserve energy and be sustainable.
