About Us

 
     

Montery AgricultureThe mission of the RCD is to conserve and improve our natural resources, integrating the demand for environmental quality with the needs of agricultural and urban users. The RCD is guided by a Board of Directors who are appointed by the county board of supervisors to serve voluntarily and represent a broad spectrum of experience including farming, ranching, financial and non-profit land conservancy management. depending upon available grant funds, the RCD employs multiple staff members with diverse technical backgrounds to support implementation of the RCD mission.

WHAT WE DO

The RCD provides direct assistance to Monterey County farmers and landowners working with us voluntarily to protect their soil, water, and natural habitats.   We also partner with agricultural and natural resource protection organizations and agencies throughout the Central Coast. Our year-to-year work is guided by a five-year Strategic Plan available for download here.

HISTORY

HOW WE ARE FUNDED

Funding for all RCD projects and ongoing operations are derived entirely from grants and contracts. The RCD does not have a tax base.
