ShiftCon Virtual Session:

Organic: Good News for Climate

Saturday, October 10, 2020 | 12:10-1:10 ET

Session Description:
Climate change is one of the most urgent issues of our time. Its effects are becoming evident through shifting weather patterns and related increases in natural disasters. Agriculture is a major contributor to climate change – but not all agriculture. Organic farming practices help mitigate climate change by increasing soil health while dramatically decreasing nitrogen pollution.  In this session, we’ll share an approachable scientific briefing on organic’s climate benefits, along with perspectives from Organic Trade Association members, including an organic farmer and an beloved family-owned brand.
