Agricultural Land Trust has been awarded a nearly $1.1 million grant from
the California Strategic Growth Council to help secure a new agricultural
easement outside Novato.
The funds are intended for a 299-acre ranch about 3 miles southwest of
Petaluma, according a project summary published by the council. The acquisition
would add to an existing 15,252-acre contiguous belt of protected agricultural
land, the summary said.
