Saturday, October 26th
Downtown Petaluma

The Pine Cone Foundation is a non-profit based in the Bay Area with the mission of cultivating a better food future by supporting farming, ranching, fishing, aquaculture, and foodways in California. In 2022, we commenced our annual Micro-Grant Program and have given financial support to 9 farmers, ranchers, and fisheries with funding exceeding $26k.

We are launching an educational event series that will serve as a fundraiser for our Micro-Grant Program. Our inaugural event will take place in the Fall and focus primarily on regenerative ranching.

Capacity will be limited to ensure a high-caliber community-building experience and authentic connection are enjoyed by each attendee.

This ticketed event will be a fundraiser for PCF and all proceeds will go towards our 2024 Micro-Grant Program Winners who will be selected in late November.

More details to come in August 2024. To keep in the loop, consider signing up for our e-newsletter, or follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn for the full agenda announcement and ticket sales launch.

Support farmers markets

Did you know that California has more than 700 farmers' markets throughout the state? Check out this full and up-to-date list of Certified Farmers' Markets by County.

Supporting your local farmers strengthens your community and local economy. On average, only 10 cents of each food dollar returns to the farmer. The other 90 cents goes to corporations for packaging, marketing and transportation. Farmers who sell direct to consumers receive 80 cents of each food dollar - a needed economic boost during these challenging times.
