In June, the California Department of Food & Agriculture (CDFA) will release a call for grant proposals from farmers and ranchers to fund management practices that improve soil health. CDFA will provide almost $4 million in grants for practices such as mulch and compost addition, conservation plantings, cover cropping, reduced tillage, and more, and another $3 million for demonstration projects. The funding comes from the state’s cap-and-trade program and must be invested in activities that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and/or sequester carbon by improving soil health.
Join us on this webinar to get a preview of the program. The webinar is offered in partnership with the UC Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (SAREP) and California Climate & Agriculture Network (CalCAN).
Topics that will be covered:
•What policies led up to the launch of the Healthy Soils Initiative?
•What practices will be incentivized?
•What will be required of growers in applying?
•What is the timeline and next steps?
In addition, webinar participants will hear about UC SAREP's work related to healthy soils.
