Climate Change – Oct. 23, 2017

Environmental Commissioner, Dr. Dianne Saxe, will discuss how much climate change is already affecting Ontario; Ontario’s current greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; and what the provincial government is doing to reduce emissions. She will also explain the resources offered by her office and what Ontarians can do, under the Environmental Bill of Rights (EBR), to affect Ontario’s environmental, energy and climate policy.

Food Systems & Climate Change – Nov. 22, 2017

This webinar will explore how our food system is both a significant contributor to climate change but also a potentially important solution, if we make some changes to the way we produce, distribute and eat food. The webinar will help participants identify how they can help solve the climate crisis.

Soil Fertility: A Brief Overview – Dec. 14, 2017

Growing crops isn’t as easy as planting some seeds and hoping for the best! Along with a variety of other factors, plants need the right amounts of nutrients to produce high yields. How do farmers and agronomists know what nutrients to supply their crops and in what amounts? How does the timing and placement of those nutrients affect their availability? This webinar will not only discuss these questions but also enable you to find the answers yourself as every cropping scenario is different.
