Ken Davis, TEMA assistant director for Preparedness, thanks all of the Silver Jackets partners for working on the final draft of the Tennessee Post Disaster Guide during a ceremony Nov. 17, 2015 at TEMA with Silver Jackets partners. Silver Jackets is an innovative program where multiple state, federal, and sometimes tribal and local agencies learn from each other and apply knowledge to reduce risk to natural hazards. Program goals include improved communication, facilitation of actions to reduce vulnerability and consequences of flooding, creation or supplement of mechanisms to implement or recommend solutions, leverage of available resources, and development of comprehensive regional flood risk management strategies.

When it comes to organic farming, Chile is a natural – flanked by the Andes to the east and the Pacific to the west, this long, narrow, remote land enjoys a geography and climate uniquely well suited to organic farming. Founded in 1986 by Chile’s Guilisasti family, Emiliana Vineyards is a privately-owned initiative dedicated to producing wines made from organic grapes and, in the case of the super-premium Emiliana Gê and Coyam, made in accordance with biodynamic principals as well. Today, Emiliana’s vineyards total 2,812 acres in several regions; fully 1,470 acres enjoy official organic and biodynamic certification. The remaining 1,342 acres are certified and are transitioning to full organic status at a rate of 450 acres a year. Collectively, Emiliana constitutes the single largest source of estate-grown organic wines in the world. Biodynamic wines are wines made employing biodynamic methods both to grow the fruit and during the post-harvest processing. Biodynamic wine production uses organic farming methods (e.g. employing compost as fertilizer and avoiding most pesticides) while also employing soil supplements prepared according to Rudolf Steiner’s formulas, following a planting calendar that depends upon astronomical configurations, and treating the earth as "a living and receptive organism and using live stock as an integral part of the process.
