Sustainable Conservation teamed up with Ceres to bring representatives from global food brands & socially responsible investment firms out of the boardrooms and onto the farm.
In the midst of a four-year drought, a group of farmers, farm advisors and water managers met to discuss capturing & recharging groundwater basins using floodwater – once the rains begin.
California’s persistent drought has underscored groundwater as a crucial source of water. Unfortunately, groundwater has been drastically over-pumped and the tools needed to manage groundwater effectively haven’t always been available.
Though water remains in short supply, we know that by working side-by-side with farmers, water agencies and business to evaluate and promote new approaches to manage water use, our communities will have the water they need for years to come.
