Workshop: Funding opportunity for farmers and ranchers
January 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
The Resource Conservation District of Greater San Diego County is hosting two workshops on the funding opportunities through the CDFA Healthy Soils Incentives Program grant program. We are also able to directly assist individuals with their applications.
The Healthy Soils Incentives Program funds farmers and ranchers to implement on-farm agricultural management practices to create healthy soils. Grants are available up to $75,000. The application period is December 28, 2018 through March 8, 2019.
Through farming practices that build organic matter, agricultural soil becomes more resilient against droughts and flooding. Increased crop yields and decreased water needs are some of the benefits of these practices. Furthermore, increased soil organic matter can contribute to decrease the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and therefore combat climate change.
