Using environmentally-friendly practices is not always the easiest way, but it is always the right way.
That’s why River Garden Farms is always striving to protect its natural environment and reduce its environmental footprint, despite it often being more expensive to do so. We have been proactive in implementing systems and procedures that create synergy between the environment and our farming operations, including the utilization of Solar Energy and the continual consideration of Water Efficiency. We believe that if we take care of the environment, then the environment will continue to take care of us.
California Water Use
In the Sacramento Valley, environmental water uses garner an even larger share of available water supplies in the region (see chart below). Efforts to ensure that basic needs are met in even the driest years is an important part of ensuring sustainability in the region. River Garden Farms is proud to be working with our partners – non-profit, federal, and state – on ways to conserve water so it’s available to meet all needs.
