Innovations for Drought Management

How does organic agriculture contribute to healthy soil and resilience to drought conditions? This session focuses on the California drought and ways in which farmers are innovating to cope with water restrictions. A panel of organic farmers and extension specialists will discuss soil, water, and crop management techniques for drought conditions in a variety of crops. Participants will share their own experiences and ways that conservation and holistic farm management can help during times of climatic variability.

Presenter Affiliation: 
Masumoto Family Farm
Bio: 
Nikiko Masumoto lives through farming and creating. Born in the Central Valley of California, she spent her childhood slurping over-ripe peaches on the Masumoto Family Farm. Nikiko has never missed a summer harvest. In 2007 she graduated with Highest Honors from UC Berkeley with a B.A. in Gender and Women’s Studies. It was there that she realized she wanted to return to the Valley to farm. But first she completed a Master of Arts in Performance as Public Practice from UT Austin. Her area of research focused on the performance of memory and Japanese American history, specifically the movement for Redress. Nikiko continues to develop her creative practices, exploring civic practice, creative entrepreneurship, storytelling, and site-specific performance. On most days you can find her on a tractor, dreaming of projects yet to be born.
