Colorado Farmers Come Together for Drought Hack
NYFC teamed up with Colorado’s Valley Organic Growers Association (VOGA) and Farm Hack to bring farmers, ranchers, agriculture policy professionals and water experts together in western Colorado for the first-ever drought resilience Farm Hack: “Building Drought Resilience on the Small-Scale Farm.” The several dozen attendees toured a local farm, discussed water issues with experts and brainstormed ways to build resilience through improving irrigation efficiency, enhancing information-sharing and continuing to build ever-stronger farmer networks.
