SONOMA COUNTY CAFF CHAPTER
For several decades the Sonoma County CAFF Chapter has organized to support family farms, sustainable agriculture and local food systems through events, resources and direct advocacy at the city and county level. This grassroots volunteer group, open to both farmers as well as farm-loving advocates, invites you to join us at our potlucks and events to network with likeminded agrarians and hear about local food- and farm-related topics. If you’d like to dig deeper into our organization or help us advocate for local policies, check out our Leadership Circle meetings.
