It’s been four years since Sonoma County’s landmark Healthy & Sustainable Food Action Plan (FAP) became the Sonoma County Food System Alliance's shared vision for the local food system.

It requires new Groundwater Sustainability Agencies in at-risk groundwater basins to develop management plans for their region. This is a huge undertaking, and the state has recognized the need to connect water management groups with professional facilitators to ensure success. About one year into the new act, let's explore where we are with SGMA implementation and how we got here.
