As wildfires bear down upon California like never before, our farmers must adapt to a New Normal, coping with loss, and preparing themselves for a threat with no signs of slowing. Hear from farmers who found themselves caught in the most destructive wildfire in our state’s history. What can we learn from their tragedy? How can farms better prepare for the next inevitable disaster? How do these fires fit within the larger climate crisis and agriculture’s role in that fight? And how does a local food and farm community respond collectively to assure safety for all, a resilient rural economy, and an equitable recovery?
