Can regenerative farming and smart agriculture policy help fight climate change? What’s the role of crops and intensive grazing in carbon sequestration? And can we develop solutions with bipartisan support? Join our panel for Climate Science on Tap as we discuss the future of farming. Meet the experts! Listen to riveting presentations! Engage in a Q & A about their work! Stick around to learn how you can get involved! This CSoT will surely provide food for thought.
