For too long, the rhetoric surrounding climate change has been divisive, pitting consumers against producers, and even sowing discord amongst farmers. At Community Farm Alliance, we believe that farmers, members of rural and urban communities, policymakers, and eaters–indeed all Kentuckians–can work together to:
- prevent worst-case climate change-induced scenarios, and
- build robust systems that can withstand the increasing extreme weather events and climate variability already observed.
CFA’s current priority areas around climate change are: strong and resilient local supply chains, healthy soils and reliable clean water, and community-based renewable energy and energy efficient options.
