Let’s talk about farming and climate change

Science shows that our climate is changing, and CFAES’s Aaron Wilson will talk about what that means to farming, and how farmers in Ohio can adapt to the changes, at the upcoming annual conference of the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA).

Wilson, pictured, who is a climate specialist with CFAES’ OSU Extension outreach arm and a senior research associate at Ohio State’s Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center, will give a workshop called “Our Changing Climate: Global Context, Local Lens, Risks, and Adaptations” from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Feb. 14. It’s one of nine workshops by CFAES experts, and one of nearly 80 workshops total, being offered at the conference, which runs from Feb. 13–15 in Dayton.
