Event Description

Canadian and Ontario farmers can have an active role in reaching the International carbon reduction targets, agreed to in the recent Paris Climate Change Conference. Farmers can reduce carbon emissions and there is an exciting area of "Cap and Trade", whereby farmers may be able to receive payments from carbon emitters to sequester carbon on their farms. Come hear about this future way of farming.  Facilitated by Chuck Mitchell.

Cost?        $10.00 per person
