DONATE to Help our County Get Back on Its Feet
CalaverasGROWN is working to help our members, friends and neighbors in need in the wake of the Butte Fire. With over ten percent of the total surface area of our county burned we are on the ground helping those affected by the burn get back on their feet with their homesteads and agricultural pursuits. Many of the farms, gardens, ranches, orchards and vineyards that supplied quality food and fiber products to our community and jobs for our members have been reduced to ashes. CalaverasGROWN will use donations for the materials necessary to help people get back on their land, get water flowing out of wells and irrigation systems and mitigate erosion in the burn.
Your donation will go for materials to repair/replacement or replanting of one or more of the following:
- Water Wells
- Water Distribution Systems
- Irrigation Systems
- Native Plant and Tree Seeds
- Gardens – replacement of seeds and plants
- Greenhouses and Nurseries – focusing on native and edible plants
- Native Forest Health

What is CalaverasGROWN doing to help now?
Even as our precious homes, forests, orchards and gardens continue to smolder, CalaverasGROWN is working to help those affected by the Butte Fire get back to the land. We have set up a swap page on facebook in order to organize needs and gives for those in need. Please visit it at www.facebook.com/buttefireswap to learn more.
