In Tehama County, resource conservation is less about a hands-off approach to nature and more about how residents and agriculture work with the land to maintain a mutually beneficial relationship. For the Resource Conservation District of Tehama County, composting is one area where new environmental needs can blend with traditional farming practices.
A project manager for more than 10 years, Kevin Greer’s current work includes a mobile irrigation lab and a partnership with the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Healthy Soils program.
“Some farming practices that have been practiced for many years are compacting the soil, stripping the soil of nutrients,” Greer says.
Greer sees cover crops and composting as two big ways to achieve healthier soil while addressing some of the generational agriculture practices whose harmful effects have compounded over the years.
