Small farmers in the Capital region are already experiencing the predicted patterns of climate change outlined in the Climate Change for NSW Snapshot but the options for adaptation are not well known. This project seeks to fill the information gap about strategies and techniques available to small farmers to address these challenges and adapt to climate change.
Listed below are resources for small farmers on climate change adaptation including event summaries with links to further reading and webinar recordings.

Find out how two farming families are applying the knowledge they learnt at workshops to their small farms in the video below.
