The air is crisp, the trees ignite in buoyant shades of yellow, and the evenings suddenly seem longer. It is fall in the Pacific Northwest. Our gardens have started to slow but some vegetables are just making their entrance. In a field of green, bright pops of orange are found underfoot. Squash, one of the Three Sisters, is ready to harvest.

“When you see severe environmental strains of one sort or another on cultures, on civilizations, on nations, the byproducts of that are unpredictable and can be very dangerous. If the current projections, the current trend lines on a warming planet continue, it is certainly going to be enormously disruptive worldwide.” –President Barack Obama
