Californians for Pesticide Reform’s “Sustainable Ag Vision” Project will develop a shared vision and strategy for achieving a healthy, resilient and sustainable agricultural system in California’s San Joaquin Valley.

This project will create the time and space for diverse grassroots groups to come together and begin the process of aligning their big picture vision, strategies and resources to transform agriculture in the San Joaquin Valley.  Through a series of monthly meetings and visioning retreats, the leadership team and other grassroots groups in the San Joaquin Valley will align their visions and long-term power and movement-building strategies to create a collective, solutions-oriented plan for driving policy change to achieve healthy and resilient agriculture in the region.
