At the moment of publication on October 21st, 2020, there are more than 7,000 firefighters working to contain 22 wildfires in the state of California. During the course of this year, 31 human lives have been lost, more than 9,000 structures have been destroyed, and over 4 million acres have burned. Each year, we’re experiencing new records of loss and destruction due to wildfire.
Fire-wise landscaping is one small action we can take as individuals to prepare for wildfire. But to achieve true wildfire resiliency, our actions need to take place on the community scale. We hope that these resources can be of service to you and your neighbors as you come together to organize and prepare for wildfire, and that your gardens and landscapes will also provide a space of healing, rejuvenation, and joy.
