Organic Valley has announced riparian restoration projects on two of its Sonoma County farms. Roughly two acres each, the projects will provide ecological restoration of streambanks and spring areas on the properties, which, together, will have the potential to store 40 metric tons of carbon within their first five years.

The first phase of the restorations on the McClelland dairy farm in Petaluma, California and the Bordessa farm, Ocean Breeze Dairy, in Valley Ford, California has been completed, with students, teachers, and volunteers planting a variety of native species of trees and shrubs. The second phase at both sites, which involves installing irrigation systems to help prevent erosion, maintain water quality, provide habitat for wildlife, and preserve the health of entire ecosystems, will begin soon.
