February 13 – March 26, 2020
MESA, in collaboration with CAFF and The Farmer’s Guild, presents Farmers Build Fire Resilience, an interactive course that will give participants the technical and theoretical toolkit needed to reduce the human, production, financial, and legal risks from wildfires. Garner actionable solutions, co-create fire response and prevention networks, and leave with an on-farm fire resilience plan to help you and your community face a future with fire. There will be seven weekly live meetings hosted online where participants learn, discuss with peers and have Q&A with guest experts and farmers. Also, pre-recorded materials, such as podcasts and videos, will be released each week, totaling no more than an hour or less of material. Applied assignments and optional readings will be offered as well.
