In the Spring of 2008 Calaveras Grown members worked with other Agricultural Coalition of Calaveras County members to draft the Agriculture and Forestry Element to the General Plan. The draft element and a letter of support were presented to the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors on August 5, 2008. The board voted unanimously to forward the element to Planning Department staff for review, revision and eventual adoption of the Agriculture and Forestry Element (pdf format, file size 128 KB).
Agricultural producers, markets, wineries, lodging providers, and restaurants are encouraged to join and use the beautiful promotional materials that have been developed. Everyone benefits when we work together to promote open space and the local economy. For more information please go to the CalaverasGROWN website.
