The mission of Ag Innovations is to facilitate collaboration among diverse groups to develop holistic solutions to California’s most complex agricultural, natural resource, and environmental challenges.
At Ag Innovations, we envision a future where California’s people and places are healthy and resilient in the face of a rapidly changing climate. Communities are creative and effective in how they steward the natural and agricultural systems that we all depend on, and work together across rural and urban divides.
We strive for a future where people come to the table to work together and find common ground, whether it’s in the barn or in the conference room. Diverse voices are sought out, and while they may not agree on everything, people leave conversations energized and ready to lead collaboration towards new solutions for a long and thriving future.
We are dedicated to:
- Creating long-lasting, effective change by helping our groups think systemically.
- Seeking multi-benefit, generative solutions that support communities, farms, ranches, forests and natural lands in order to improve our ability to adapt to changing conditions in the future.
- Designing and facilitating our processes to be welcoming, inclusive, and diverse, to see clearly the historic patterns and relationships that keep things the way they are, and to lift up and care for all voices and all needs.
- Striving to courageously and skillfully address issues of power, race, and inequity with our groups and in our organization.
