Agriculture Policies & Practices
How Agriculture Impacts the Climate and
What We at 350 Wisconsin Can Do About It
Monday, April 3, 2023
Please join us on Monday, April 3, to hear Mike Friend and Harry Pulliam speak about agriculture policies and practices.
Conventional agriculture generates a significant amount of greenhouse gases, in addition to other harmful impacts on water, soil, and human health. However, there are alternative farming practices that that can repair the harm, sequester carbon, and support thriving communities, both human and non-human. Come learn how we at 350 Wisconsin can support farmers to use these regenerative practices!

Michael Friend leads the 350 Wisconsin Agriculture Policy and Practices team, part of the Dane County Community Working Group within the Community Climate Solutions Team. He also co-leads the Dane County group with Kathleen Fitzgibbon. He became interested in agriculture in recognition of the many good things a farm can provide, from nutritious food and education to carbon sequestration. He has spent the last few years working on a small intensive vegetable farm that provides summer youth employment and job training for people interested in agriculture as a career.
Harry Pulliam is the vice-president of the South Central Chapter of the Wisconsin Farmers Union, where he works on policy initiatives at the statewide level. He is also on the executive committee of the Sustain Rural Wisconsin Network. Harry and his wife have a microfarm in Green County, Wisconsin, where they produce vegetables and value-added products.
