Across the US, climate change contributes to increasingly devastating wildfires. The size, longevity and intensity of wildfires is rapidly increasing, with record breaking fire seasons every year - a trend that is expected to continue. Each year, tragic stories of farmers’ losing everything haunt communities with small scale, sustainable farmers – as producers are faced with severe property, crop, livestock, labor and market losses. This workshop will introduce the Farmer Campus Farming through Wildfire Season Workbook – a practical tool and collection of case studies that helps identify resilience practices and most importantly, empower agricultural producers as they face a future of catastrophic wildfires. This workshop will provide agriculture service professionals, such as technical assistance providers and farmers with the knowledge, resources, and practical tools to build preparedness, response, recovery and socio-ecological resilience on-farm.
