Build Healthy Soils with Free Assistance to Secure up to $100,000 Grant Funding!

Join Solana Center for Environmental Innovation (Solana Center) for a free technical assistance webinar for farmers and ranchers to learn more about applying for up to $100,000 in state grant funding. Assistance is provided by the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s (CDFA) Healthy Soils Program (HSP) for farmers to implement conservation management practices that sequester carbon, reduce atmospheric greenhouse gases (GHGs), and improve soil health.

The HSP Incentive Grants provide financial incentives directly to California growers and ranchers to implement one or more on-farm agricultural management practices to improve soil health, including compost and mulch application, cover cropping, no-till methods, conservation planting, and more.

The virtual workshop takes place on Tuesday, January 16th from 6 to 7 PM. To register, please visit this link. For questions about the workshop, or the program send an email to Find more details about the grant program and reference HSP resources here.

“We’re excited to support farmers and ranchers in implementing innovative programs that reduce our carbon footprint and help San Diego’s agricultural community make improvements that impact our agricultural health, environment, and economy,” said Executive Director Jessica Toth.
