California Foodshed Funders

Paicines, CA

Model A FSP since April 2023

California Foodshed Funders began informally in 2006 when a handful of grantmakers convened to begin discussing how they could make a bigger impact on California’s agriculture and food systems. They seek to address the following goals, all aimed at restoring soil health, the cascading benefits in nutrient density of food crops, water conservation, productivity of the land, and health of all who work the land.

  • Relationship with Land: Shift culture around relationship with land and each other toward kinship, healing, reciprocity.
  • Farmer Programs: Increase Technical Assistance/Education/Land Steward support.
  • Leverage Public and Private Resources: For regeneration and justice.
  • Land Access: Create access and financial support to get farmers on the ground.

To facilitate relationship–building, learning, and collaboration toward a vibrant, responsive funding and finance ecosystem that supports the transformation of California’s food and agricultural systems – and relationships with the land and among people – toward regeneration and justice.
