Healthy Soils/Carbon Farming
The North Santa Clara RCD is offering carbon farm planning assistance to eligible agricultural producers. The District also is a member of the Greater Bay Area Carbon Farming Hub (GBACH), which includes Alameda County RCD, Contra Costa RCD, Loma Prieta RCD, San Mateo RCD, Solano RCD and Suisun RCD. GBACH is in its initial planning stages to develop funding for a regional carbon farm coordinator and supplemental technical assistance to expand our capacity to provide carbon farm plans within our region.
The District was the recipient of a CDFA Healthy Soils Technical Assistance Grant in 2017, which allowed us to provide workshops and technical assistance to agricultural producers applying for CDFA Healthy Soils grants.
