Climate Change: No Denying It
Sharon Zayac, OP -- Director Jubilee Farm
Central Illinois, along with a big swath of the country, has been moving toward drought for several years. Each year at Jubilee Farm (http://jubileefarm.info/) we talk about it. We watch it encroach on our growing season as it alters planting and germinating times. We watch some of our crops shrivel up after a valiant effort to grow and note that others never even break through the soil. I am not sure why we were so stunned a few summers back when for the first time the well we use to water the garden went dry in midsummer.
