Sustainability Is Heating Up

June and July are going to be hot, hot, hot! Just like your thermometers, the heat of the California Almond Sustainability Program (CASP) is rising over the next two months with some sizzling public workshops.

With “sustainability” becoming such a buzzword, it’s become more important than ever that the California Almond industry use its voice to tell a story about sustainability to regulators, buyers and consumers. But we can’t tell a story about sustainability without some proof to back it up. For that, we need your help. You can participate in CASP by filling out a self-assessment of your growing operation.

Have you been to a workshop and filled out assessments before? Great! Bring your laptop or tablet to one of our sustainability workshops and we’ll show you how to update your information and add new orchards in a fraction of the time it took you to fill out the assessment the first time with our new online system.

Are you in need of continuing education units from DPR? Come to a workshop to learn about earning an hour of credit by filling out the Pest Management module online. Don’t forget to bring your laptop and your license number.

Haven't heard of the California Almond Sustainability Program? Come out to one of our grower workshops for a good lunch and good company while you learn more about CASP and how it can benefit you as a grower.

Before harvest this year, join the 15% of California’s almond growers and participate in the California Almond Sustainability Program. Every data set we collect goes toward telling the story of stewardship and sustainability in California Almonds. Contact Kendall Barton by email or at (209) 343-3245 for more information.

See related articles to the right to see how information collected from self-assessments is put into action.
