Technical Assistance Workshop • 31 Aug 2017

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) recently released a request for applications for the Healthy Soils Program which provides funds for farmers to implement Healthy Soils practices in an effort to build soil carbon and reduce greenhouse gases in California agriculture. CAFF will be hosting a workshop to provide technical assistance to California growers and ranchers interested in applying for the Healthy Soils incentives program. The workshop will thoroughly go over program requirements, the application process, and help participants get started on their applications. For more information on the Healthy Soils Program, download this Fact Sheet. Applications for the Healthy Soils Program are due by 5:00pm September 19, 2017.
