KVPR and 1A Virtual Event: When natural disaster strikes agriculture
Crops and cattle are some of the victims of heavy rainfall in Central California. KVPR and 1A are teaming up to ask what can be done to help farmers during natural disasters.
If you’re a farmer in California or elsewhere in the country, what are your biggest concerns about our changing environment? Leave your questions and comments below and we'll get to them during a live, digital engagement event on Tuesday, May 30, from 2 to 3 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. PST.
Watch the event live here.
- Dennis Hutson, fruit and vegetable farmer in Allensworth, CA

Moderator: KVPR reporter Kerry Klein
This show discussion is part of 1A’s “Remaking America” project looking at how our government is – and is not – working for everyone. It’s a partnership with six public radio stations, including KVPR. Remaking America is funded in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
