In support of thriving local communities, landscapes, and economies, we work with Resource Conservation Districts, state and federal agencies, policy makers, and citizens to ensure the resilience and health of California's water, soil, wildlife habitat, and other natural resources — today and for generations to come.
Notes from the field
Riverside-Corona Resource Conservation District has responded to increased development by becoming a local leader in urban agriculture and local food systems.
Each month we compile a small sampling of the incredible work that California’s RCDs are doing in and on behalf of their communities.
The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service has partnered with CARCD on an Outreach to Historically Underserved Farmers pilot program, which offers “mini-grants” to eligible non-profits and Resource Conservation Districts to conduct outreach to underserved producers.
