California Agriculture Almanac
SAGE is excited to introduce the California Agricultural Almanac, an interactive web-based mapping portal that for the first time brings together information on farming areas, crops, farms, markets and farm-related events. The Almanac lets you dynamically explore local as well as statewide agriculture – find the regions where crops are produced, get details on crop seasons, discover farms (including up-close aerial views), and find out about markets and agricultural events that you can participate in. In this initial release, the Almanac has more crop detail for the San Francisco Bay Area – the same details will be added to other parts of the state in the coming months.
The Cal Ag Almanac draws data from partner agricultural agencies and organizations to offer a fresh and comprehensive picture of California’s remarkable agriculture. The Almanac has been developed by Sustainable Agriculture Education (SAGE) in collaboration with GreenInfo Network with funding from the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Specialty Crop Block Grant fund (hence the initial focus on specialty crops; more types of production coming in future additions).
