Contra Costa County Adopts Agriculture and Open Space Policy

A Day on the Farm in Sonoma County

On May 21, Greenbelt Alliance and Sonoma County Farm Trails co-hosted the Sonoma Farm Tour. We plucked eggs still warm from laying with Adam Taggart at Tara Firma Farms, walked freshly planted veggie rows with Jesse Pizzitola at First Light Farm, and were inspired and impressed as always by Elizabeth Kaiser at the lush Singing Frogs Farm. Rain, wind, and sunshine added drama to the day’s visit with locally-grown food and farmers at their best.
