Cultivating Community North Valley is a project supported by a partnership of local players and programs whose shared vision is to strengthen the health and vitality of our community and our local food network. CCNV provides education, outreach, and resources to students, small-scale farmers, under-served communities, and everyone interested in participating in the local food movement. We invite you to explore our page and hope that you’ll join us in cultivating a better community here in the North Valley!
CCNV is supported by a California Department for Food & Agriculture Specialty Crop Block Grant awarded to CSUC’s Research Foundation, and is directed by Dr. Lee Altier
