WEBINAR | Biodiversity and Profitability on Organic Farms - Environmental and Economic Benefits of Organic Practices

07/01/2020 - 2:00pm 07/01/2020 9:00pm WEBINAR | Biodiversity and Profitability on Organic Farms - Environmental and Economic Benefits of Organic Practices A growing body of science shows that organic farming supports more biodiversity and can bring in more income than conventional farming, highlighting the environmental and economic benefits of using organic practices. What is less understood is how these benefits are affected by the farming landscape around organic operations. Join Amber Sciligo, Associate Director of Science Programs at The Organic Center, who will be joined by two of the senior authors of a recently published meta-analysis, where you can learn about more about the study’s findings and these benefits from organic practices.
