Free Healthy Soils Program Financial Assistance Workshop - Ramona

Want to get paid to grow healthy soil on your farm? Farmers and ranchers can receive up to $100,000 to implement practices that build soil while reducing atmospheric greenhouse gases. Attend this workshop for free assistance applying for California's Healthy Soils Program!

The Healthy Soils Program is a California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) funded program that provides financial incentives to California growers and ranchers to implement conservation management practices that sequester carbon, reduce atmospheric greenhouse gases (GHGs), and improve soil health. The program includes a range of eligible practices that farmers and ranchers can receive compensation for implementing. This workshop will introduce attendees to the Healthy Soils Program and walk them through the application process.

During the last grant year, all 5 applicants that worked with Solana Center to complete their application were awarded funding. You can read more about it here.

 

Practices that can be funded by the Healthy Soils Program include:

  • Compost and mulch application
