Gold Ridge Resource Conservation District

We inspire and partner with our community to protect the natural resources and agricultural future of our District.

Learn about the many benefits of on-farm biodiversity at Bonterra Organic Vineyards in Ukiah, CA. Methods of conserving and enhancing biodiversity include habitat conservation and enhancement around or in vineyards, planting and incorporation of cover crops and other vegetation, protection and attraction of wildlife species and the use of compost and soil amendments that increase soil biodiversity. These practices help growers produce grapes while minimizing negative impacts on natural resources and provide natural buffers to the ecosystem, including erosion control, increased soil fertility, and reduced pest and disease pressure, which all help to improve grape quality.
