Profitable Engines For The Local Organic Food Economy
The mission of a RCI is to plan, locally fund and implement high impact, sustainable infrastructure projects to demonstrate the direct relationship between the success of these projects and documented increases in the resiliency of our community. Local development corporations are set up to fund and implement the local projects using local staff, support and grassroots funding.
The first project of West Sonoma RCDC is a Nutritive Dehydration Center (NDC); a local high impact food infrastructure project and Phase 1 of a larger group of projects for West Sonoma County known as the Organic Local Food Park™.
WS RCDC is in the early stage of organizing, funding and implementing the Nutritive Dehydration Center project to enhance food security in West Sonoma County while creating jobs, education and local resiliency.
NDC's are in development, not only in West Sonoma (Northern California), but also in Colorado and New York. With more on the way!
The West Sonoma NDC will create a potential of up to $4.3 Million
in new market for organic local farmers within the first 27 months of operations.
