Thank you for joining us on Wednesday Dec 4th for the GASP Community Event.
We were thrilled that almost 100 showed up for our first event and that had to keep adding chairs!
We hope our message of community cooperation and seeking solutions resonated with you.
And a big thank you to the speakers, sponsors and GASP team!

Our Dream: to create a healthy environment and thriving economy for those who stay and play in Graton. To achieve this dream over the next few months we’ll be looking at how we as a community (both residents and farmers) move away from synthetic pesticides to accelerate organic and regenerative agriculture.
Our Goal: eliminate synthetic pesticide spray and aquifer polluting chemicals within 1 mile of 95444 in 2020.
Call to Action:
Awareness: please share our petition with your neighbors, friends, coworkers, at your schools or any groups.
Pledge: please sign our pledge (and share) to only purchase or consume organic/biodynamic wine. (check out Rawwine.com and dryfarmwines.com for recommendations). Use #whatsinyourglass to highlight organic wines.
Support: let retailers (restaurants, bars, grocery stores) know you want organic/biodynamic.
Volunteer: we need data, please sign up to join the 50+ residents in well, toxicology, soil and air (drift catchers) testing.
Again, thank you for your support and community cooperation as we seek solutions together.
While our event focused on the health and environmental impact, we also want to highlight as a community it is important that we support the move to organic and regenerative agriculture from an economic perspective.
73% of organic vineyards are in Italy, Spain and France… only 2-3% of Sonoma County is organic.
It takes 3-5 years to convert... need to start NOW.
