Guenoc Valley has deep roots in agriculture, and the project will serve to highlight that industry and incorporate the broader community in its offerings. Both historic and active agricultural practices, such as vineyards and grazing operations, will not only continue, but also expand to on-site food production. Promotion of local produce and artisans’ products, farm-to-table restaurants, farmers markets, and recreational activities will ensure the continued viability of Lake County’s agricultural culture and economy.
Our keystone of agritourism is centered around offerings such as community-supported agriculture, local food production, and farm-to-table experiences. Through these offerings, the project will preserve and protect the continued viability of Lake County’s agricultural culture.
Environmental Awareness Workforce Training
All construction personnel will be provided environmental awareness training with materials prepared by a qualified biologist to ensure that construction personnel can:
- Identify sensitive habitats and special status wildlife species and take the appropriate actions in that encounter
- Identify nesting bird behavior that would indicate that they are being disturbed by construction practices
The construction personnel will also work closely with a tribal monitor or cultural adviser to ensure proper respect and precautions are taken regarding sensitive cultural elements.
