The Conservancy - Shaping the Community Stewardship Ethic
The Green Valley Agricultural Conservancy (Conservancy) is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is to celebrate and perpetuate the tradition of the cherished working landscapes that have characterized this part of Solano County for well over 150 years. The Conservancy’s approach is to promote sustainable food and agriculture systems as a means of creating a synergy between the agricultural lands, the built and natural environments, community health and natural resource stewardship. Founded in May of 2010, the Conservancy provides mechanisms to assure the long-term preservation and management of the open lands in Green Valley. The Conservancy will help to manage and monitor the ±1,500 acres of productive agricultural land, pastures, and natural areas.
The Conservancy has three primary roles:
Living in a working landscape that is connected to the surrounding network of open lands and agricultural lands will shape community life in numerous ways. Buying seasonal fresh food from the central farm-stand, attending an outdoor fundraiser at the main Green, or helping to restore the creeks and related habitats will be typical events of everyday life in Green Valley.
