New opportunities for San Joaquin Valley cotton growers!

On Thursday, March 26th from 9 AM to 1 PM, you will have an opportunity to participate in an event that will explore ways for keeping SJV cotton in the global marketplace.  

By taking part in this meeting, you will learn about and see why a variety of soil and crop management approaches that are currently not widely used in cotton production in California may have relevance to your farms and your ability to access markets in the future. 

In addition, you will have an opportunity over a catered lunch to interact directly with a representative of the Soil Health Institute in Greensboro, NC,  and a number of textile and clothing brand people in a discussion of their initiatives for soil health-based cotton production and what these initiatives mean for how you produce cotton. 

Needless to say, this will not be a “business as usual” gathering in which the same old topics are trotted out.  Rather, the meeting will be a straightforward sharing of new information and a dynamic give-and-take of ideas aimed at helping you to avoid obsolescence and become more attractive to buyers. 

We hope you will join us at Texeira and Sons, LLC, 11323 Erreca Road north of Hwy 152 just east of Turner Island Road. 

Please RSVP via email to hello@fibershed.com or phone Jeff Mitchell at 559-303-9689.
