NYFC launches "RESILIENT," new film on water conservation in the West

The National Young Farmers Coalition proudly announces the release of its short film “RESILIENT: Soil, Water and The New Stewards of The American West.” Resilient Play image

Within the context of historic drought and increasing urban demand, “Resilient” highlights the work of innovative farmers and ranchers across western Colorado who are adapting to a drier climate. They are building soil, enhancing irrigation efficiency, and saving water, all while forging resilience in the face of great change.

The film launch follows a farm tour and symposium in Southwest Colorado co-hosted by NYFC and the Family Farm Alliance, which brought together over 50 farmers, ranchers and service providers for three days of collaboration around these issues. We also offered a sneak-peak of “RESILIENT” to the Durango community the second night of the tour. Read more about that event in High Country News.

Stay tuned for more from the farm tour. And be sure to share the video!
