Abundance NC is hosting the fourth annual Climate Change Adaptation Conference in Pittsboro, NC, on March 4, to help local farmers plan for and adapt to the impact of climate change.
2016’s conference will explore both practical and social solutions and adaptations to climate change. We will dig deep on this one by exploring the nuts and bolts of on-the-ground, down-and-dirty farming, permaculture techniques and hard data, as well as seeking the very root of climate change and other forms of natural environmental destruction. We can adapt to a changing climate, but if we don’t strike the root we’ll never repair what’s been broken. We believe this exploration starts with our basic assumptions about the merits of our civilization and what it took to get here: including the inequity of race, colonization and the politics of extraction in an increasingly damaged world.
The conference is scheduled for 8am-5pm at Central Carolina Community College in Pittsboro. Registration is $45-$65 on a sliding scale.
