About Us

Our Mission

The North Coast Soil Hub is an agriculturally focused network that addresses region-specific needs, successes, and challenges. Our coordinating and advising team is made up of Resource Conservation Districts (RCDs), Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) Field Offices, University of California Cooperative Extension Farm Advisers & Researchers, Santa Rosa Junior College educators, the Carbon Cycle Institute, industry organizations and associations, and most importantly North Coast agriculturists!

We are dedicated to the application of agroecological principles to advance regenerative agriculture in California’s North Coast region.

To meet the demand for knowledge about how to build and maintain healthy soils, the North Coast Soil Hub is a network that includes: farmer-to-farmer workshops, long-term experimental demonstrations, technical services, educational resources, and this website as an information sharing platform.


The North Coast Soil Hub is coordinated by a group of Resource Conservation Districts (RCDs). RCDs are local government agencies founded after the 1930’s Dust Bowl to assist farmers and ranchers with soil and water conservation. To read more about RCDs, please visit: https://carcd.org/
