Join the producers from Garden Variety Cheese, Schoch Family Farmstead, Odonata Winery and Cima Collina Winery at Happy Girl Kitchen in Pacific Grove to celebrate local agriculture and the work of the Resource Conservation District of Monterey County. All proceeds will be donated to the RCD for work in protecting and conserving local farmland, wildlife, and waterways.
We will be celebrating the Resource Conservation District of Monterey County with a presentation on their work in the region. The RCD provides direct assistance to Monterey County landowners and managers to voluntarily protect their soil, water, and wildlife. Their work has resulted in the establishment of voluntary conservation and restoration projects on over 80 farms by collaborating with over 160 farmers and land managers. They provide education, project planning and support services for a range of resource management methods including erosion control, water quality protection, habitat enhancement, flood management, irrigation efficiency, and nutrient management. Their conservation and restoration work is critical to maintaining an environmentally sustainable and economically viable agricultural sector while maintaining a high quality of life throughout the county.
