The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) is hosting a stakeholder workshop on the development of a soil organic carbon map for California. They are looking for stakeholders to provide early feedback as the map develops. This map will serve as an indicator of soil health as California takes steps to sequester carbon in agriculture soils to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Participate in the upcoming webinar to provide public comments on the Development of a Soil Organic Carbon Map.

Join over 160 farmers in donating to the California Association of Food Banks’ (CAFB) Farm to Family program to support those who may be in need of fresh California-grown fruits and vegetables.

The Farm to Family program helps move excess California-grown products from the field to food banks up and down the state. Over 160 growers currently donate more than 50 varieties of produce to the Farm and Family program, including many Western Growers members.
