North Coast Growers’ Association

North Coast Growers’ Association supports Humboldt County’s farmers and artisan producers in building a robust and resilient local food system. We envision a strong, successful, growing community of diversified farms supporting broad based consumption of local foods and products. Our organization is stable and resilient, our members are thriving, and our customers are knowledgeable about the value of local food and small farms. We actively engage a more culturally and economically diverse customer base and foster responsible stewardship of our agricultural resources. We ensure that local market opportunities match the needs of our members and community. Our local food system is financially sustainable, money invested within direct and wholesale opportunities is balanced with the impacts to our members, and NCGA income supports the diversification of markets and product offerings of our members. NCGA Agricultural Programs are a new sector of NCGA, designed to address the most critical needs in our regional farming community in Humboldt County, CA. In collaboration with many regional partners, our programs work to provide local farmers with resources to help with their business and growing practices, connect to local and national agricultural resources, and provide workshops and peer-to-peer learning opportunities on topics that will benefit our local farmers and food system.

Pacific Gateway Center

The mission of Pacific Gateway Center is to empower low-income residents, immigrants, refugees and other vulnerable populations to achieve self-sufficiency through skill-building and access to opportunities while respecting cultural heritages.  As the majority of our immigrant clients are farmers from their respective home countries, leading self-sufficient lives means returning to the farm. Currently we lease 206 acres of farmland to refugee and immigrant families in Kunia.

O’ahu Resource Conservation & Development Council

The O’ahu Resource Conservation & Development Council is an independent non-profit entity that works to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. While our mission and mandate are broad, recent work has focused on assisting rural enterprises and farmers, while fostering education and adoption of sound conservation practices on rural lands. Several current projects engage farmers in imperiled watersheds, supporting their efforts to reduce soil erosion, improve water quality, increase productivity of the land through the use of regenerative farming and ranching practices, and rehabilitate ecological services and habitat through the restoration of native species. We have provided training, fiscal sponsorship support, and a network to cultivate the growth of rural businesses, particularly focusing on those owned and operated by women.
