STREAM THE SHORT “CULTIVATING RESILIENCE” FEATURE FILM
We collaborated with Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) to create a series of video shorts that share stories of agricultural resilience. We wanted to listen to what hopeful stories farmers were sharing about climate change and community, so we connected with scientist Laura Lengnick who had just released her new book, Resilient Agriculture: Cultivating Food Systems in a Changing Climate. We began in the Southeast, first visiting livestock producer Will Harris of White Oak Pastures in Bluffton, Georgia, then dairyman Tom Trantham at Happy Cow Creamery in Peltzer, South Carolina and finally vegetable grower Ken Dawson of Maple Spring Gardens in Cedar Grove, North Carolina. Then, we continued our tour with a trip to the Northern Great Plains to visit Bob Quinn Organic Farmer in Big Sandy, Montana. These farmers shared changes in weather that they have experienced on their farms and the climate resilience benefits resulting from their innovative actions.
