Introducing Climate Ready Midwest: Empowering Extension Professionals in Climate-Smart Agriculture

Hello! And welcome to the Climate Ready Midwest project blog. We are a multi-state partnership working with the USDA’s Midwest Climate Hub to increase the impact of climate-smart agriculture here in the Midwest. You can learn more about our project and team here. 

Our stated goals are to: 

-help define what climate-smart agriculture means to the midwestern Extension agricultural community, and 

-to empower Extension professionals to lead climate-informed agricultural programming across the Midwest. 

These are lofty goals, so let’s dig in a little.
