California Roundtable on Agriculture and the Environment
The California Roundtable on Agriculture and the Environment (CRAE) is California’s preeminent forum for agricultural and environmental leaders to resolve conflict, find common ground, and work together to support agriculture and improve environmental outcomes.
California Roundtable on Water and Food Supply
The California Roundtable on Water and Food Supply (CRWFS) is a multi-sector forum of experts and leaders convened by Ag Innovations since 2010 to identify obstacles, develop solutions, and take action to enhance water security for agriculture, the public, and the environment in California.
Firesmart Lake Sonoma Watershed Project
In the Summer and Fall of 2018 Ag Innovations and Sonoma County Water Agency (Sonoma Water) partnered to a two-part workshop series called "FireSmart Lake Sonoma" about living with fire in the Lake Sonoma Watershed. If a catastrophic fire were to occur in the Lake Sonoma Watershed, it could lead to contamination of the region’s drinking water supply, affecting over 600,000 residents. We are committed to working together on solutions to better protect your home and our primary regional water source. Lake Sonoma watershed has three distinct communities, connected by major roadways and divided by the lake. With this in mind we hosted a two-part workshop on reducing fire risk and increasing fire resiliency in the Lake Sonoma Watershed.
This project is a Resilient Community Pilot Project funded by PG&E Resilient Communities Better Together 2017 grant and the Sonoma County Water Agency.
San Mateo County Food System Alliance
Founded in 2006, the San Mateo County Food System Alliance (SMFSA) is a collaboration of community leaders focused on creating a better future for farms, people, and the environment in San Mateo County.
Santa Barbara County Conservation Blueprint
With increasing pressure to accommodate population growth on open space and agricultural lands in Santa Barbara County, it is critical that the community develops a collective vision for the future of its most important wild and working landscapes as well as the tools and strategies for how to move toward that vision.
Sustainable Agricultural Lands Conservation (SALC) Program
In Santa Clara County (County) the time is now to align the myriad of plans, programs, policies and infrastructure investments affecting undeveloped agricultural lands across this rapidly growing County and its Cities to sustain the Valley’s natural environment, support the local agricultural economy, maintain the health of its communities and increase the resiliency and adaptation of this region in the face of climate change.
Sustainable Groundwater Management Program in Solano County
The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) established a robust framework for the sustainable management of groundwater resources for the first time in California’s history. The first step in implementing SGMA is to develop Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs), a focal point of local public agencies and stakeholders at this time. Ag Innovations is supporting the GSA formation process for two GSAs in the Solano Subbasin, primarily located in Solano County, by offering a range of professional services, including process design, facilitation, research and analysis.
