Welcome

We are a grassroots, countywide movement uniting people and initiatives to serve the future of Solano County, to promote ecologically sustainable, economically and socially just communities in a world that works for everyone. This month, we are turning the spotlight on our local food system.

We believe a functioning local food system is a collaborative network that ensures environmental sustainability, economic viability for farmers and others working in the food chain, responsible waste management practices and equal access to fresh, healthy food by all members of our communities. Find out more about our work on local food here and check out ways you can be involved around the county here.
