In the days, weeks and months following the devastating Tubbs Fire help came pouring into Sonoma County from near and far. The outpouring was staggering and the appreciation was heartfelt. However, the recovery is not yet done.
The Larkfield Resilience Fund was created by Tubbs fire survivors to provide recovering families with the support and assistance needed to accomplish the monumental task of rebuilding their lives.
The rebuilding and recovery of these homes and neighborhoods will take years and the need for support is still present. Neighborhoods and families have band together with incredible resilience to rebuild the community that they love. With your support these neighborhoods will be able to replant trees, replace infrastructure that is otherwise unfunded and establish emergency preparedness plans.
Larkfield is an unincorporated community in Sonoma County, California. Larkfield is nestled between the rolling hills of the Mayacamas Mountains and the Russian River wine growing region. Located between the City of Santa Rosa and the Town of Windsor, Larkfield is positioned perfectly to cater to retirees, growing families and the business community. It is a family-friendly community which includes the Mark West Unified School District.
On October 9, 2017 our city was forever changed when it was devastated by the Tubbs Fire. The Tubbs Fire is one of the most destructive wildfires in California history, destroying over 5500 structures in Santa Rosa with more than 750 in the Larkfield-Wikiup area alone. Entire neighborhoods were completely leveled by the firestorm, leaving NOTHING in its wake. Many families evacuated in the early morning hours with minutes to spare as flames were barreling in from Calistoga. Priceless keepsakes were left behind, beloved family pets were lost, and lives were forever altered.
