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.
