There is new grant funding available to ranchlands in our area to implement soil carbon capture projects. Santa Clara County is now accepting applications to its Agricultural Resilience Incentive (ARI) Grant Program for up to $30,000 in grant funding for compost and mulch application, plus 25 other pre-approved practices that improve soil health in rangelands and farm soils. The deadline to submit is May 1, 2021. If you have a minute please go to https://www.sccgov.org/sites/dpd/Programs/Pages/ARI.aspx to check out the full announcement.
Chris Potter Ph.D. would be most willing to work with rangeland owners and managers in the Mount Hamilton area (at no cost) to submit applications for compost purchases to this ARI grant program in the coming weeks. This includes the purchase, delivery and application. Feel free to contact Christopher Potter, Ph.D. for further information about this grant opportunity. His contact info is below.
