Working with Albertan Farmers to Create Climate Solutions That Are Good for the Farmer, the Farm, and the Climate

By: Rural Routes to Climate Solutions (RR2CS)

Rural Routes to Climate Solutions (RR2CS) is a central Alberta based project providing agricultural producers with learning opportunities to benefit from climate solutions. It is led by project coordinator, Derek Leahy and supervised by programs manager, Brenda Barritt of the Stettler Learning Centre. RR2CS runs farm field days, workshops and conference speakers series’ and produces a podcast in order to explain that what is good for the farm can also be good for tackling climate change. In just one year they have created a space in Alberta for agricultural producers to engage in discussions about climate change where no space existed before.
