The Fish Friendly Farming Program is now enrolling new sites. You don’t need to have a creek on your site to qualify; every vineyard site from the ridgetop to the river can enroll. Most agricultural lands will need to complete a Farm Plan to be in compliance with the new Water Quality permit. The California Land Stewardship Institute (CLSI), a Napa-based nonprofit organization, directs the program. CLSI assists landowners to implement projects and finds grant funds to cover project costs.
Join us for a workshop covering beneficial management practices on February 15, 2017. Following the workshops a site visit is conducted. Several months later you receive your farm plan and are ready to be certified.
Contact the California Land Stewardship Institute (707) 253-1226 ext. 2, or e-mail email@example.com to enroll.
