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.

THREE PRIMARY ROLES.
Protecting our agricultural legacy
The Conservancy provides assistance and oversight to the farms in Green Valley so that a comprehensive approach of supporting agricultural and growing food for the local community and regional foodshed is accomplished.
Establishing a stewardship ethic
The Conservancy oversees the management, stewardship, enhancement, restoration and conservation easements for conservation lands including oak woodlands, riparian areas, pastures, rangelands, and agricultural lands.
The Conservancy provides educational and interpretive opportunities and the social glue for the evolving community.
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.
