Young Farmers Climate Campaign
The damaging effects of climate change on agriculture are escalating, and the time to act is now.
In our 2022 Young Farmer Report we found that 73% of young farmers have experienced at least one climate impact on their farm in the past year. And 88% percent of young farmers attribute changes in weather patterns they are experiencing on their farms to climate change. Additionally, in our 2020 survey of policy issues, our members identified climate action as their number one priority. Young farmers have lost crops and sustained damage to their farms due to extreme weather events, have experienced disrupted growing seasons, suffered severe economic losses, and have shut down operations due to droughts and unsafe conditions from uncontrolled wildfires.

The National Young Farmers Coalition’s Power in Land, Agriculture, Climate, and Equity (PLACE) Fellowship will build a grassroots effort to replace the corporate climate agenda and promote a more equitable paradigm that positions farmers – especially young, LGBTQ+, and BIPOC farmers – as the source of innovation for justice and climate resilience.
