A Farmer Campus Program
Farming through Wildfire Season
Dedicated to helping farmers and ranchers face a future of fires
Building Fire Resilience Together
Drawing on decades of training small-farmers amidst climate change, Farmer Campus in collaboration with community partners bring you the Farming through Wildfire Season Program. You’ll find a self-led online course with a learning network of fellow farmers, a downloadable Fire Resilience Workbook, farmer centered research and a collection of producer stories sharing impact and recovery to help you garner actionable solutions, deepen your understanding and leave with a hands on tools to build fire resilience on your farm.
Climate change and high-intensity wildfires increasingly threaten agriculture in the West. In 2019 and 2020 this program supported 215 producers in wildfire risk management, response and recovery. However, the need continues as farmers across our networks have lost everything or faced severe losses due to the largest wildfire season on record. Farmer Campus’s Farming Through Wildfire Season program aims to reduce the human, production and financial risks of small-farmers to wildfires. We offer concrete solutions based on decades of training small-farmers, and address the needs of producers in high-risk regions in the West. It builds upon existing multimedia-curriculum with case-studies of impacted producers, farm-based activities, and a comprehensive workbook. This program offers viable, actionable solutions developed in collaboration with top fire experts, organizations and impacted farmers.
