Wild Farm Alliance Provides Free Technical Assistance for California Farmers

by Guest Blogger |

Wild Farm Alliance is excited to announce that we have received funding from the California Department of Food and Agriculture to support California farmers in completing conservation plans for their farms. Interested farmers can work with Wild Farm Alliance to create one of the following types of plans: Beneficial Bird Habitat Plan, Pollinator Habitat Plan, or Carbon Farm Plan. Together, we will assess your farm’s natural resources and concerns, identify multiple opportunities for improvements, and prioritize plans for the best outcomes.

The completed plans will include some of the following: a) an overview of your objectives, b) your current farm conditions, c) a timeline for planting, d) site preparation, e) plant lists, and f) maintenance. The plans will help you be better prepared when applying for assistance with state and federal agencies such as the California Department of Food and Agriculture and the Natural Resources Conservation Service.  

Some of the many practices that could be outlined in the plans include the following: 

  • Hedgerows
  • Windbreaks
  • Riparian buffers
  • Grassed waterways
  • Filter strips
  • Field borders

If you are interested in working with Wild Farm Alliance to create a conservation plan, please complete the interest form and Wild Farm Alliance will contact you.
