The Colusa County Resource Conservation District (CCRCD) recently held a drawing for a Colusa County Grown (CCG) commodity bag. Community members who completed a planning survey for the CCG stakeholder meeting received one chance to win this sought after award. Local specialty crop producers donating to the award included Grindstone Wines LLC., Chico Nut, and Colusa Milling Company. The lucky winner of the commodity bag was CCG Stakeholder Kent Boes from Williams.

The Colusa County RCD has served as the lead for Colusa County Grown, but they are only one part of this locally led marketing campaign. CCG Stakeholders’ participation is critical if CCG is to be sustainable after the CCRCD’s current grant project ends in 2017.

The CCRCD will facilitate the stakeholders meeting on, Thursday July 19th at 5:30 p.m., at 100 Sunrise Blvd., Colusa Industrial Park Conference Room in Colusa. All community members are invited to attend this event. Refreshments will be served. Please RVSP by calling (530)458-2931 x3 or by email at info@colusarcd.com, by July 12th.
