In partnership with the Tehama Community Food Alliance, TCF contributes educational insight during the Alliance's Field to Fork Dinner series. TCF presents information to help foster a connection between stewardship, food producers, and consumers. Most of the food featured during the event is gathered from local producers, many of which have implemented conservation practices to some degree. Showcasing producers as land stewards that meet their own needs while optimizing natural assets that occur on their property is of value across the food supply chain. TCF acknowledges and celebrates natural assets or ecosystem services (pollination, soil formation, flood control, carbon storage, habitat, aesthetics, etc.) that occur on these working lands during this community event.
TCF facilitates public, interactive Conservation Conversations to connect citizens with natural resource experts. Meaningful exchange of information between residents and experts.
February 25, 2016. The Conservation Conversation was an informative evening highlighting the Sacramento River corridor in Tehama County. Local author Bob Madgic guided attendees through the natural history of the Sacramento River. Current and planned riparian restoration projects in Tehama County were provided by local natural resource managers as well as information on how citizens can join conservation efforts. The film, Watching the River Run was featured and is based on Madgic's book, The Sacramento: A Transcendent River. There is no cost to participate in the Conservation Conversation, donations welcomed.
