Event Description

Join the CCOF Foundation and the California Climate and Agriculture Network on April 20 for a webinar on California’s Healthy Soils Program. 

As organic farmers and ranchers have long known, healthy soil can improve yields, increase water retention, and promote biological diversity, all while also helping mitigate climate change. California will soon launch the Healthy Soils Incentives Program, a program that provides grants to farmers and ranchers for practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and sequester carbon by improving soil health through practices such as mulch and compost addition, conservation plantings, cover cropping, reduced tillage, and more. In this webinar, you’ll learn what practices are eligible and how to apply. Meet the USDA National Organic Program requirements to maintain and improve soil and natural resources, and get paid along the way!

In May, the California Department of Food & Agriculture (CDFA) will open a healthy soils grant program that will fund farmers and ranchers for management practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and/or sequester carbon by improving soil health. The first of its kind in the country, this exciting and trailblazing new program is funded from revenues raised by the state’s Cap-and-Trade Program.

CDFA will provide $3.5 million in incentives to farmers for practices such as mulching; compost addition on cropland and rangeland; cover cropping; and conservation plantings such as filter strips, vegetative barriers, buffer strips, windbreaks, and more. An additional $3 million will be available for demonstration projects that must reduce net greenhouse gases, include an outreach and education component, and may involve research. CDFA is in the process of finalizing the program details. The current framework is available on the Healthy Soils Incentives Program webpage.

Though the final guidelines will not be released until May, our speaker Renata Brillinger of the California Climate and Agriculture Network (CalCAN) will give participants a preview of the program and highlight projects that are eligible for funding so you can prepare to apply. The Healthy Soils grant application period will only be open four to six weeks long once it is announced in May. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn what conservation practices you can receive payment for while also meeting the USDA National Organic Program requirements to maintain and improve natural resources!

During the webinar, Brillinger will also touch on other CDFA natural resource conservation programs open to farmers and ranchers.

This webinar is co-organized by CCOF and CalCAN.
