Napa, CA  – The Napa Valley Grapegrowers (NVG) will be hosting a Fire Resources Community Fair next Thursday, October 29.  The fair will provide Napa County residents and business owners with complimentary supplies to prepare their properties for winter rains.  These efforts will help to further protect water quality from damages resulting from the recent wildfires.

“As growers and practitioners of best practice, NVG leaders developed this event to share what we know with landowners throughout the county who have an interest in protecting our hillsides, creeks, and landscapes after the devastating fires.  We are fortunate to have such strong, well-informed partners sharing supplies and information,” said Jennifer Putnam, CEO and Executive Director of the Napa Valley Grapegrowers.

Through thoughtful preparedness, the Napa County community is working collaboratively toward ensuring the recovery and safety of our region post-fires, and with this, the long-term vision of environmental stewardship.

With COVID safety continually top-of-mind, a drive-through pick-up with rice straw net wattles, rice straw bales, tarps, and gloves, will be located at the Napa Valley College and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Many thanks to Central Valley Ag Supplies and Earth Saver Erosion Control Products for dedicating their time and resources in support of NVG’s Fire Resources Community Fair.
