Inland Orange Conservancy Preserves Southern California Historic Orange Groves and Delivers Citrus to Supporters

You can join the Inland Orange Conservancy and enjoy delicious local Southern California oranges year-round, while conserving historic orange groves! Is it working? "More than 850 Inland Empire families joined as IOC Citrus Supporters for the Spring '06 Navel Orange season. We helped support 12 local growers by paying them 18 times more than commercial packinghouses would have. We also donated 39 TONS of citrus to our local homeless and needy," they report on their website.

Most of Southern California's citrus groves will disappear by the end of this decade unless action is taken. The IOC makes groves sustainable by connecting local growers to local consumers in its "Share of the Crop" program.

Inland Orange Conservancy does outreach to educate our community on our citrus heritage and our citrus present thru programs, tastings, grove walks, and school activities.

Inland Orange Conservancy gleans fruit left by commercial agriculture and gets it to the Inland Empire needy, via its "Thanks a Ton" gleaning program.
