We have teamed up with Newo Global Energy to put on a free Solar 101 workshop in Stettler, AB. Enjoy a light dinner with RR2CS and Newo and learn more about what solar can do for you.
Join Seth Leon from the Alberta Community Co-operative Association and Ken from the Battle River Railway to learn more about setting up a co-operative to save on costs and minimize environmental impacts.
Please join us to learn how to identify, prevent, and manage your trees against Mountain Pine Beetle Infestations.
Want to learn about greenhouse growing that keeps your energy bills and carbon footprint down? Join our workshop this winter!
Join Cole Gross, PhD student and Rural Routes to Climate Solutions for a webinar discussing Cole’s study on how planting trees and mixing organic additives into soils affect greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural activities, the controls on soil carbon cycling, and the ability of the surface and deep soil to capture and store carbon.
Ken Espheter joins us to answer all your questions about setting up a Farmer’s Co-Op in Alberta!
Trees and agriculture do mix. In fact, if managed correctly, the two can help each other out. We are hosting a field day at the University of Alberta research sites looking into the benefits of combining trees into agricultural systems both for productivity and carbon sequestration.
We are checking out the research sites in Lethbridge that are unlocking the secrets and benefits of inter-cropping and perennial cereal grains production.
University of Alberta PhD candidate Erin Daly discusses the research she is conducting at the Breton Plots to determine if perennial grains could be a viable crop in Alberta that could potentially require less inputs too.
Perennial crop production (grains, oilseeds, pulses) is an emerging field of research in North America. Some of the research on perennial cereal grain is taking place in right here in Alberta. We are giving you an opportunity to connect with one of the University of Alberta researchers.
