WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO

We are a partnership of farmers, agencies and conservation organizations that examines the best avenues for providing resources to farmers to enhance their land for healthy crop production and natural resources conservation.

HOW WE DO IT

We connect farmers to public and private funding sources and guide the implementation of on-farm conservation practices using both innovative and time-tested management techniques for improving overall farm health.

HIGHLIGHTED PRACTICES

Practices highlighted at this event include cover crops and planting native woody vegetation along field edges and waterways.

FEATURED PROGRAMS

The Field Day will feature market-based incentive programs such as the Central Valley Habitat Exchange and innovative projects like the Fish Food on Floodplain project among others.

TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

UCCE farm advisors and NRCS field staff will be in attendance to answer questions.

The 2017 Healthy Soils Demonstration Project is funded by Greenhouse Gas Reduction Funds and is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing GHG emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment.
