 The Sustainable Systems Research Foundation and the Technical Assistance for Small Farm Regenerative Agriculture is pleased to announce a third round of Regenerative Agriculture workshops for 2023-24. With the support of USDA and the California Department of Food and Agriculture, these Spanish and English hands-on workshops on management skills, regenerative agriculture, and agricultural technologies and practices for small farm operators in Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Monterey and San Benito Counties will run from October 2023 to March 2024 at sites around the Central Coast. For more information, in Spanish or English, please contact Marisela Lara at CHLARA4920@GMAIL.COM.










The Sustainable Systems Research Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit green think tank and eco-project incubator for the Monterey Bay Area and Central Coast of California.

SSRF seeks to create a sustainable Central California Coast through local, participatory community development of sustainable systems and practices.

SSRF develops active collaborations with organizations, public agencies, funders, donors and small private companies that share our interests and goals.

Our philosophy is that the best form of activism is that which benefits the community, is reproducible, scalable and easily adopted and adapted to other places.

Our projects and programs go beyond vision to actual deployment–to function as models that can be replicated in other cities in California, the United States and the World.
