About Grown In Marin (GIM)
Grown In Marin is a website maintained by the Sustainable Agriculture Program at UC Cooperative Extension, Marin County. This site serves two distinct groups of visitors: commercial ag producers and those who simply want to know more about agriculture in Marin. We constantly update the collection of resources as we create (or find) new materials. If you have favorite resources that you use and want to recommend to the site, please click here.
Grown in Marin started in 2004 as a collaborative effort between UCCE Marin and several partner organizations such as MALT, AIM and Marin Organic. It has grown immensely since then and was overhauled completely in 2019.
In addition to maintaining this site, UCCE Marin’s Sustainable Agriculture Program organizes workshops, publishes factsheets, and generally works to ensure the continued viability of agriculture in Marin County. Drawing on the wealth of scientific and practical expertise within the University of California system, we help producers explore new enterprises and implement new practices that strengthen the health of our agricultural community. UCCE Marin’s Sustainable Ag Program is also home to our Agricultural Ombudsman who is a neutral resource helping producers understand and navigate the many regulations that apply to farming and ranching.
