California Foodshed Funders
California Foodshed Funders seeks to shift food production from being an extractive industry to one that rebuilds healthy agricultural ecosystems. In addition, California Foodshed Funders supports the shift to organic farming. Currently, only 2.6% of California’s more than 77,000 farms are organic. An increase in the number of organic farms would mean reducing the use of harmful synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
