NOFA/Mass Climate Action Challenge 2021

Online

Throughout the month of October, we will be sharing how food and agriculture are intrinsically entwined with our climate, what problems farmers, nature lovers and consumers are facing due to a changing climate, and how we can work together to make headway on these problems. If you’re ready to share the responsibility of educating about and advocating for these issues, we challenge you to take action and support these efforts this month--and beyond.
