Google is making the premium version of its workplace video chat tool free until July, to help businesses and schools working remotely due to coronavirus and Xfinity is offering free access to WiFi hotspots.

Social media can be an essential resource during situations like we are currently facing. 

Facebook has community-based groups that you can join to stay connected and informed, government agencies and in some cases, elected officials use Facebook pages to update the public about changing circumstances and resources.

Twitter is another really good platform to follow particularly for real-time updates by government agencies and elected officials.

Instagram is a favorite of the cannabis community, and a great way to follow the activities of our fellow cannabis businesses across the supply chain and across the state or even across the world Instagram is image-oriented and not as content dense as Facebook, which can be a nice change of pace when you want to feel connected and engage with the community, but need a break from news articles and the depth of content found on Facebook.

Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) is working closely with the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) to compile a list of companies that provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for COVID-19. The CDFA is working closeling with CalOES to identify new or additional supplies for PPE. To the extent they can, there has been an attempt to verify on a surface-level the vendors on this list. Because CDFA cannot fully vet the vendors, the buyer has the obligation to do their own vetting.

Grow a Row for Caring Kitchen!

COVID 19 has had an impact on the food stability for many people in Mendocino County. Now more than ever, we need the community to come together and do what we are known for, producing organic healthy food! MCA is partnering with the Caring Kitchen to bring their Grow a Row program to the MCA family!

What is Grow a Row?

Grow a Row asks local home gardeners to pledge one row of food to the Caring Kitchen. The produce must be organically grown.

What is the Caring Kitchen?

The Caring Kitchen is a non-profit based in Ukiah. The organization prepares and delivers healthy, organic meals to cancer patients all over Mendocino County. Even better, their volunteer chefs are teens from the community who get to learn about preparing healthy meals for themselves and their families in the process. You can read more about The Caring Kitchen here.

How Does the Program Work?

The first step is to fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1hFK6eMNsa-3jXtmNaHmZ-UvEq0te0jEsuDOAlJ6k5FE/edit

The form will ask you how big your Grow a Row space is and which fruits and vegetables you will be planting for donation. Once you submit the form, someone from MCA will contact you with drop off details.

If you do do not have access to internet, you can call MCA at 707-234-5568 and sign up that way.

Who Can Participate?

This program is open to anyone! The only rule is that all produce donated must be grown organically. This is on the honor system but produce is going to vulnerable people so organic is important!

How Do I Get Seeds?

The Garden’s Project is delivering! Here is the form to fill out. Donations appreciated but not required! Gardens Project Seed Delivery: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YDSWPD6

What Should I Grow?

The Caring Kitchen has supplied the following list of produce that they can most use:

Flat leaf parsley, Basil, Cilantro, Mint

Green onions, White/yellow onions, Garlic

Strawberries/berries

Peas, Spinach, Rainbow chard, Dino kale

Carrots, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Potatoes, Beets

Butternut squash, Delicata squash

Tomatoes, Sweet peppers, Melons

Edible flowers 

Lemons, Fuyu persimmons, Plums, Peaches, Pears, Apples

+ eggs, goat cheese

How Do I Donate the Produce When it is Ready?

The Caring Kitchen operates out of Mendocino College in Ukiah. The best drop off day/time would be Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning after 9 at the college kitchen. Additional details will be provided once the form is submitted. Again, for those who don’t have internet access, call 707.234.5568 for MCA’s help in handling your donation.
