U.S. Department of Agriculture

The project would promote climate-smart food production practices including strip cropping, multi-story cropping and others for desert adapted crops within four agrisystems. Producers would receive payments for implementing and auditing these practices and for additional practices as well as technical assistance specialized based on culture, language and experience.

Through its partners, the project create a climate-smart logo, brand guide and messaging for multiple audiences and marketplaces such as chefs/restaurants, grocery stores, farmers market, and online markets. The project also plans to lease a commercial test kitchen for identifying culinary qualities of climate-smart crops, conducting consumer research, promoting a Desert Seed-to-Table program, and advancing retail market development and a consumer awareness campaign.
