In a few short weeks, CDFA will host the Scaling Up Climate Smart Agriculture forum which will bring together farmers and ranchers, international partners and climate stakeholders to discuss the important role agriculture plays in climate discussions. This event, part of the Global Climate Action Summit, would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of CDFA’s Executive Office interns – Grace Berry and Nancy Chang.

Both of these remarkable women have an appreciation of agriculture and a strong interest in our food system.  Grace is studying environmental sciences at Berkeley and Nancy is studying earth systems at Stanford – two great California institutions. Their combined work on the climate conference and policy issues will be greatly missed at CDFA and we cannot say  “THANK YOU” enough for all of their hard work. We can only hope that they return soon to start their career with the Department!

Thank you Grace and Nancy for a pleasant and productive summer!
