Climate Farm School

The Climate Farm School program at Terra.do is a unique opportunity for adult professionals to live and work on a farm for a week while learning about the food-climate nexus. The course runs for 4 weeks, with weeks 1, 2 and 4 all online, and the 3rd week on the farm. This week comprises hands-on work, growing and eating delicious healthy food, meals with local chefs and farmers, meaningful climate impact, generative discussions, and climate-focused professional development. Whether you are looking for an entry point into climate action or looking to further your personal and professional climate journey, this course will empower you to take the next step.

Curriculum topics include:

  • Regenerative agriculture principles, theory and practice
  • The food-climate nexus (mitigating and adapting to climate change on farms/across the food system)
  • Soil health 101
  • Economics of diversified farming systems
  • Models of food system transformation
  • Competing visions for the “future of food”: agtech + agroecology

Laney completed her Ph.D. at the U.C. Berkeley Energy and Resources Group where she researched sustainable, agroecological food systems and climate change education, and spent several summers working on diversified vegetable farms. She has published book chapters on teaching climate change in U.S. K-12 classrooms and on conducting participatory agroecology research. Laney now works for Terra.do Climate School as the Director of the Climate Farm School program, a hybrid online and on-farm learning opportunity for adult professionals. When she's not teaching or learning, she enjoys being outside for a variety of physical activities- farming, worm composting, trail running, bird watching, or swimming in the ocean. Originally from the East Coast, she now lives in Sonoma County, California. She helped build the off-grid tiny house that she now lives in with her partner, as part of the first-ever California Tiny House Competition.
