Calaveras Grown Program
What Has ANR Done?We provided the leadership and expertise to organize and launch this new program. By obtaining grant funding we were able to develop a logo and numerous marketing materials. We helped the group gain their non-profit status. We have organized and presented three educational conferences. We have written and recorded 52 weekly educational radio programs supporting the organization.
Calaveras Grown Helps the Local EconomyLocal markets now carry locally produced items bearing the Calaveras Grown logo. Calaveras Grown, which now has about 60 members, has become the predominant agricultural organization and educator. Growers have increased profitability. Four producers have developed new niche products to market under the Calaveras Grown logo.
