The Center for Land-Based Learning has been receiving some sizable support this year from a variety of sources. The funding support will assist the Center with its effort of relocating its statewide headquarters from Winters to a larger site in Woodland. Participating Farm Credit associations have pledged to contribute between $20,000 and $100,000 dollars a year for the next five years. The Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation also recently gifted $1.5 million at a groundbreaking celebration for the Center’s new site back in May.
The groundbreaking ceremony also launched the Center’s Growing Our Future Campaign, with a goal of raising $4 million to assist with the relocation of its headquarters as well as expanding the programs and services that are offered. The goal is to have construction and renovation completed in early 2020. The new statewide headquarters and workforce development campus will feature three farm fields totaling 30 acres, space for training in resource conservation and “beautification”, and the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation Farm House.
