Watch: Harvest @ Sea Ranch in Service of the Sonoma Coast

When we talk about communities on the frontlines of climate change, we often picture - rightfully - imagery of the Global South. But extreme weather events threaten us all. And as the largest historic producer of emissions, those of us in the US owe it to ourselves - and to everyone - to decarbonize yesterday. Since we can’t break physics in 2024, we’ll have to go for the next best timeline - decarbonizing today.

The Sea Ranch, an iconic intentional community on the Sonoma coastline, was built to enhance peoples’ interconnectedness with nature. It’s also on the frontlines of climate change, in a very different way: coastal erosion, skyrocketing insurance due to wildfires, and struggling flora. These are a few of the ways in which the new normal manifests and affects everyday life on the Northern California coast.

Sea Ranch resident Dan Wood knows all of this. That’s why he chose to install Harvest at his Sea Ranch home.

This is the story of Sea Ranch, and its place in the world - how one homeowner took it upon himself to do his part to build a path to a greener future.
