New CSF Online Course

Registration Full – Check back again in Spring 2018!

CICSS is currently offering a new online course, “BF 107: “Climate Smart Farming” from Jan 17 – Feb 21, 2017, in partnership with the Cornell Small Farms Program. In this six-week online course, farmers will learn to identify key impacts to their farms, and how to develop a plan of action to both increase resiliency to extreme temperature and precipitation events, or short term drought, and strategies to reduce their farm’s greenhouse gas footprint. Students will learn from climate experts, educators, and fellow farmers on ways they can proactively approach challenges such as drought, flooding, summer heat stress, changing seasons, freeze risk, and heightened pest and weed pressures. For more information on the Beginning Farmers Project and online courses, visit their website, where a full list of courses and information on registering can be found.
