What will I learn?
By the end of this training, learners will create a plan that will foster greater collaboration between their watershed management organization and agriculture partners.
You will learn to:
- Differentiate between the roles of farmers, farm workers, and service providers and their role in decarbonization.
- Explore best practices in building and maintaining collaborative relationships.
- Apply best practices in project management, through goal setting, rationale development, project implementation, and success measurement.
- Examine the opportunity for collaboration between watershed management employees and volunteers with that of farmers, farm workers, and farm service providers.
- Critique best practices of climate adaptations in farm operations that have led to significant gains for watershed management.
- Analyze potential gains made in soil and water conservation, sustainable land management practices, crop management, and nutrient and pest management that have supported the building of a resilient ecosystem.
Successful completion of the microcredential will require participants to:
- Evaluate strategies that have been successful in key areas such as soil and water conservation, sustainable land management practices, crop management, and nutrient and pest management.
- Design a collaborative project, relevant to learners’ watershed area related to an issue such as crop management, soil erosion, precision agriculture, fertilizer applications, pest management, and protecting natural assets.
