What we do
Cultivating Commerce is one of several initiatives of the non-profit North Coast Resource Conservation & Development Council (NCRC&DC) which serves four Northern California counties. We have built rainwater collection systems at local schools, held educational workshops with landowners to increase pollinator habitat, created and expanded community gardens, educated landowners to prevent the spread of Sudden Oak Disease, prepared detailed feasibility studies for biomass-to-energy production in Mendocino County, and conducted workshops with ranchers and farmers interested in adding an agri-tourism element to their operations.
Please visit our home website of www.ncrcandd.org to learn how you can help us help others. You may make a tax deductible donation at our home website, and all donations are used to further our mission, which includes working with improving pollinator habitat, enhancing agri-tourism, supporting eat local/grow local gardens, and fostering sustainable biomass energy production. In addition, the funds will be used for the new initiative Cultivating Commerce which will provide entrepreneur support for business start-up or expansion in agricultural and natural resource areas.
