WHAT WE DO FOR THE COMMUNITY

The term, “It Takes a Village’ could not be more true then when considering the scope of Amador’s agricultural community. While one specific organization might wear the management hat for a program, or get the credit for a great idea, it often takes collaboration of many organizations to bring those ideas to fruition.

One example of this is our Amador County School Gardens program. While the Farms of Amador began this project and provided the funding, it would not be possible to see the progress we have without numerous partner organizations.

We strive to create information overlap within our board of directors and our volunteers. When one of our directors also works or volunteers with other organizations, our efforts are more efficiently shared. Another example of this is our quarterly newsletter. Each newsletter highlights not only Farms of Amador activity, but information about agencies such as the Mother Lode Land Trust and Amador County Resource Conservation District.

If you have a program or organization that would benefit from a Farms of Amador partnership, please reach out to us. We would love to hear what you are up to.
