2016 Key Accomplishments
- The Cachuma Resource Conservation District is coordinating with agencies such as the United States Department of Agriculture, University of California, Marin Carbon Project, and a local rancher on a test plot for the California Carbon Project. This experiment will provide more information on the conversion of atmospheric carbon to soil carbon by applying compost.
- In 2016 the Santa Barbara Food County Food Action plan was developed to address the unsustainable nature of the County's current food system. The plan offers holistic approaches to improving the sustainability.
