Growing Food During a Drought
Front Porch Farm in Healdsburg, CA is located right next to the Russian River, and during this drought period, their water was shut off to maintain water levels and the health of the river. So how do you farm without access to water? Front Porch had to adapt quickly to these new conditions, change their planting plans, and harvest what they could before ending production for the season.
