Recently, Wolfe’s Neck Center received up to $35 million via a grant from the USDA’s Partnerships for Climate Smart Commodities program, which aims to support agriculture’s ability to become a solution to climate change. We wanted to share with you what this means for Wolfe’s Neck Center.
Agricultural solutions to climate change focus on creating healthy soil to maximize carbon capture and support productive food systems. Over the past few years, Wolfe’s Neck Center has worked to support farmers’ access to the necessary tools and knowledge to implement climate smart agriculture, through programs like the Maine Soil Health Network. This game-changing grant enables Wolfe’s Neck Center, and the alliance we are leading of over 60 partner organizations across the country, to scale that knowledge and data to farmers nationwide and at varying levels of production – from the vegetable farmer down the street with a few acres to a rancher with 500+ cows.
Whether we are leading a national alliance to foster climate smart agriculture or taking a group of campers to collect their own dozen eggs, we are working towards the same goal – to transform our relationship with food and farming for a healthier planet.
We are honored, excited, and humbled to be one of 70 projects funded by this federal program, and can’t wait to get to work!
All the best,
