After conducting stakeholder needs assessment, the USDA Northeast Regional Climate Hub discovered that simple discussion groups on specific regional climate topics may be useful to producers and Extension Professionals. In response, CLN and the Hub have teamed up to pilot a set of Google Groups to facilitate this line of communication.
Topics in the pilot include: Row Crops, Forestry, Aquaculture, Specialty Crops and more. This effort will expand to include other USDA Hub Regions based on the response to the pilot and interest from the Hubs.
Northeast readers can join the groups now at http://www.climatelearning.net/discuss/.
