    I wanted to inform your network audiences that Crosshatch (www.crosshatch.org) is wrapping up a “Carbon Farming and Forestry Cohort” experience that involved 9 Northern Michigan Landowners with a presentation to the community in Traverse City in just over a week. Could you please share within your MiCAN and other Climate and conservation networks in the region to invite folks to attend for some community Q&A and discussion?

    Additionally, we are hosting a farm tour that will spotlight some small farm experimentation in cover crop use next Friday Sept 22nd 6-8pm in Northern Charlevoix County, please share and encourage folks to register. https://www.crosshatch.org/events/2023/buckwheat-bees-bacon-and-barley

    Local farmers are supporting one another to navigate the complexity, isolation, and analysis paralysis regarding what to do in the face of climate change-related weather and economic shocks. We invite you to join us to continue learning and discussing community and individual climate change adaptation strategies related to agricultural activities.

    Following a brief presentation, we will discuss promising practices and support resources for climate-smart farming and land management from backyard to business scale.

    Additionally, Please note and share:
