Check out this interview with Tamara and Adam on Cortes radio by Anastasia Avvakumova! https://cortesradio.ca/how-island-growers-are-adapting-to-the-dry-summer-heat/

The topic is: how island growers are adapting to the dry summer heat. Adam says: "The weather’s been so up and down for a long time, I would say since the early 2000s. This is my 25th year of gardening. When you farm, you see these cycles and you adapt to it. So, it’s not the weather that happened today. It’s whether you and I can do things to change the outcome"

We are thinking a lot about this as we prepare the seed bank- how can we build more resiliency to changes not only in the weather but in food production and supply chains?

How have your crops done in the heat wave? If they've done well, would you consider saving some seeds and donating them to the seed bank? This way we have seeds from crops adapting to a changing climate!

If your crops didn't do well, how do you envision preparing next year for the unpredictability of a changing climate?
