The Organic Center and Furman University will present a webinar February 22 at 5:30 p.m. Eastern on measuring on-farm biodiversity using a simple free public tool called the Healthy Farm Index. This webinar will frame sustainable agriculture practices in light of their connection to nature and more specifically biodiversity. It will then demonstrate a new online interactive version of the Healthy Farm Index. Use of the Index will help farmers and other landowners better understand how nature on their farm changes and how this change benefits the farm and surrounding environment. The webinar will end with a brief discussion on how the Health Farm Index could align with the new USDA biodiversity and natural resource guidelines and a question and answer session. For more information, contact The Organic Center’s Director of Science Programs Jessica Shade. Log- in information, and call-in information: dial in 1-719-234-7800, participant code 756016#.
