Draft for 2023-24
This project works with new, beginning and experienced socially disadvantaged Latina/o farmers in Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, San Benito and Monterey Counties through a series of six workshops focused on regenerative agriculture and techniques as well as small-scale technologies practices that can increase productivity, extend the growing season, protect and conserve natural resources and improve marketing and distribution.
