CCWD Assists Butte Fire Recovery Efforts Of CalaverasGROWN
Posted by: thepinetree on 02/02/2016 11:15 AM
San Andreas, CA...The Calaveras County Water District Board of Directors recently contributed $5,000 to CalaverasGROWN to aide in Butte Fire recovery efforts. The community organization used the funds to purchase weed-free rice straw, which is spread over burned areas that have the highest risk of erosion. These efforts provide significant benefits to private landowners by giving the land a chance to spring back to life without catastrophic erosion damage. These erosion-control techniques also greatly reduce the amount of ash, mud and debris that end up in the Calaveras River, which flows into New Hogan Reservoir. But CalaverasGROWN is about much more than simply spreading straw.

Cal Waste Recycles With Goats (You Have To Watch The End Of The Video)
Posted by: thepinetree on 01/29/2016 09:03 AM
Arnold, CA...Cal-Waste is on the cutting edge of recycling technology. Sometimes the best way to go forward in recycling is decidedly old school. They rented the 350 + goats to eat the Christmas trees that were collected throughout the areas they service. There were probably 300-400 trees at the ranch. IT’s just another way to recycle the trees and not have to landfill them. We have hopes to next year make it a destination for families to bring their kids and see the process. There is a man that stays with the goats while they are here. He stays to take care of them and also to deliver the kids. There have been 10-15 kids born since they have arrived. As you can see in the video they are fenced off with their mother’s in a little nursery.
