Climate Change and Resilient Agriculture

I recently gave a short “TED-style” talk at an educational forum on food and agriculture in Hood River, OR. While I don’t profess to have expertise in this particular subject, it was a great excuse to do a bunch of research. And to finally wrap my brain around the concept of “resilient agriculture”. This is beyond sustainable agriculture, it is about an agriculture that is more resistant to perturbations in the climate, pests, and disease. It is about reducing or eliminating use of off-site inputs and recycling all organic wastes on site. It is about building soil carbon, not just sustaining the status quo. I have attached my Powerpoint presentation if you wish to take a peak at it! Enjoy! FoodForumClimatepresenation
