Building a Better Future for Marin, Lake, Sonoma and Mendocino Counties
The NCRC&DC supports economic growth through sustainable use and conservation of natural and agricultural resources in our 4-county north coast region. We are a grassroots non-profit organization that brings together people, needs, concerns, opportunities, and solutions.
The NCRC&DC promotes agricultural diversity and whole farm planning so family farms and ranches can maintain economic stability and use sound environmental practices To carry out our mission, we have launched CULTIVATING COMMERCE, an initiative to support agricultural entrepreneurs in our 4-county area. We promote commerce by helping new or existing farmers and ranchers start or expand sustainable agricultural operations. A priority area targets local food production and regional marketing of produce and other agricultural commodities.
Visit www.cultivatingcommerce.org for helpful information on starting or expanding your agricultural operations.
We continue to work in the areas of pollinator habitat improvement, eat local/grow local garden support, agricultural tourism enhancement, and sustainable biomass energy development.
RC&DC areas (Take a Tour of our Area). We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and are one of hundreds of RC&DCs across the nation. RC&DCs were established in the Agriculture Act of 1962 to empower rural people to help themselves. There are twelve authorized RC&DC areas in California, and more information about RC&DCs in California can be found at www.californiarcandd.org.
