The Sustainable Agricultural Lands Conservation (SALC) program is a component of the Strategic Growth Council’s Affordable Housing and Sustainability Program (AHSC). The program supports the protection and management of California's agricultural lands through planning and permanent protection of farm and ranch lands via agricultural easements. SALC will prevent increases in GHG emissions by limiting opportunities for expansive, vehicle dependent forms of development in favor of more focused, compact, and transit oriented development within discrete growth boundaries. In future years, SALC is proposed to support farm-scale conservation management practices that further promote reductions in GHG emissions and increases in soil carbon sequestration.
The SGC would like to announce the upcoming technical workshops (multiple dates and locations) for the 2016-2017 Sustainable Agricultural Lands Conservation Program.
