This week on the podcast LaChaun is talking with Sandy Fisher of Chico Flax. Chico Flax is a movement to promote a more self-reliant flax-to-fabric textile industry in the Northern Sacramento Valley. Sandy, along with other regional growers and gardeners, grows, harvests, and processes the plant for fiber. In our conversation, we talk about how she started as a small-scale gardener and is now growing on 3.75 acres.
This week's podcast episode was recorded several weeks prior to the wildfire devastation that hit Sacramento in mid-November 2018. Chico, the town mentioned in this episode, was hit on its edge. Sandy is safe and her farm was unaffected, but her surrounding community has experienced a great deal of devastation. Sandy shared a link for an organization that set up The Camp Fire Evacuation Relief Fund, if you would like to donate to support their community. I encourage you all to keep their community in your thoughts. Comment below to continue the conversation!
