JLD Ag Land Preservation Fund
$755 raised from 7 donations
How We Impact the Community
We are one of the NPO’s in the County dedicated to protecting the heart and soul of the Napa Valley: our agriculture and environment. We aim to conserve our Valley’s rural and small town character, enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. Our primary goal is to preserve, protect and promote the priceless, non-renewable resource, and the national treasure that is Napa Valley’s agricultural land.
We work toward our primary goal in two major ways: first, through programs to fund education about agriculture and it’s centrality to Napa County; and second, by commissioning research on sustainable land use and promoting wise public policy whenever county ag lands are threatened.
More specifically, we educate the public and inform local governments about the Ag Preserve’s history and its importance to Napa County communities. We fund public policy research, educational outreach, public forums, and annual scholarships to local students pursuing agricultural studies.
Since 1968, pressures on the Ag Preserve have only increased. We must educate Napa residents about its importance. The Ag Fund has been an indispensable advocate for protecting and educating people about this critical resource.
