February 14, 2011
On January 17, 2010, A to Z Law partner John Mathews and associate Robert Krimmer were invited to address the Water Issues Committee of Ventura County concerning a recent report issue by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (“CDFA”) entitled “California Agricultural Vision: Strategies for Sustainability” (“AgVision”). The AgVision report was issued by CDFA on December 16, 2010, and can be accessed at http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/agvision/.
AgVision sets forth twelve strategies for sustaining California Agriculture. The report represents the culmination of a two-year effort by CDFA to work with agricultural, environmental, and governmental leaders (as well as a diverse range of other stakeholders) to identify obstacles to sustainable agriculture in California.
The Water Issues Committee of Ventura County is comprised of members of the Associated Water Agencies of Ventura County (“AWA”). AWA’s mission is “to develop and encourage cooperation among the entities for the development, protection, conservation and improvement of the total water resources for Ventura County.”
