This is CalCAN’s sixth conference, and it usually sells out. The March 4 th farm tours are already sold out, but feel free to email to join the waitlist.

Here is a sample of some of the topics that will be covered (see the full program here):

  • What it Takes on the Ground to Get Carbon Into the Ground
  • Managing Agroecosystems for Climate Resilience
  • Technical Assistance as a Driver of Climate Smart Agriculture
  • Getting the Most Out of California’s Climate Smart Agriculture Incentives Program
At the end of the day, we will have a series of dynamic, engaging lightning talks on topics including:
  • An uncertain future of first-generation ranchers
  • Can seaweed reduce methane emissions from cattle?
  • State-of-the-art climate smart farmworker housing
