Identify public and private lands for harvesting local ecotype acorns.
Identify partners with land and resources to propagate oak seedlings.

If you are interested in participating, whether as a grower or purchaser, please fill out this form (or the form at the bottom of this page) and we will be in contact with you soon.
Participating growers will get to some profits from oak sales, which will encourage them to stay involved into the future. A share of the profits from oak seedling sales will also be reinvested to Golden Hills RC&D to help sustain funding for staff coordination.
