Resilient Agriculture, Second Edition

Cultivating Food Systems for a Changing Climate

Real world stories from the frontlines of climate change, resilience, and the future of food

CLIMATE CHANGE PRESENTS an unprecedented challenge to food and farming in the U.S. and beyond. Damaging weather variability and extremes capture the headlines, but more subtle changes caused by hotter summer nights, warmer winters, and a longer growing season have far-reaching effects on the land, people, and communities that feed us.

This expanded and updated edition of Resilient Agriculture takes you beyond the headlines and the hype to shine a light on agricultural climate solutions with the power to cultivate new American foodways that are just, sustainable, regenerative, and resilient.

Updated content includes:

  • Current and expected changes in regional weather patterns that disrupt food and farming
  • New adaptation stories from sustainable, climate-smart, organic, and regenerative farmers and updates on the producers featured in the first edition
  • Real-world applications of resilience thinking that connect the dots between food justice, sustainable development, regenerative economy, and planetary health
  • A companion website with stories, videos, issue briefs, reading guides, and more.

Whether you are working in food and farming or are simply an interested eater, Resilient Agriculture will take you on a journey into real-world resilience solutions with the power to regenerate the well-being of land, people, and community no matter the challenges ahead.
