It’s been cray-cray looking for a new place to farm. I need:
water retaining soil
Those are difficult to find in this valley or anywhere in California nowadays. But I have good news!
So, I checked in with this soil conservationist at the USDA Natural Resource and Conservation Service (NRCS). We’ve been working together over the past year to plan how best to practice soil replenishing, water conserving farm management. She was going to advise me through a grant application this month, but I wrote to notify her that we I won’t be applying since I won’t be farming at my current site anymore. She wrote back saying that she and her husband have 3 acres of Class I soil, well-irrigated, fenced land that I could possibly use.
WOOHOO! I’ll keep you updated.
