We are always interested in seeing stories about how local communities are recovering from floods.

The first farmer featured in the video link below describes how his Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program helped him recover from flooding this September in New York.  I have participated in CSA programs in the past and have always valued them for the shared risk-shared benefit structure for local farmers (not to mention the fresh veggies and opportunities to get my hands dirty!) 

Yesterday, our Senior Vice President for Conservation, Andrew Fahlund, spoke on NPR’s Talk of the Nation about how we can make better decisions about how we prepare for flooding.  You can hear that broadcast here.
