The Ventura County CoLAB Foundation is a public 501(c)(3) charity formed to promote the use of scientific data and education materials to support land stewardship, protect agricultural assets and preserve economic livelihoods in Ventura County.
The Foundation will partner with local businesses and agricultural organizations to foster government transparency, business friendly regulations, ordinances and government programs. We aspire to build upon our existing strengths, commitments and engagements of the Ventura County CoLAB Organization by funding scientific and engineering research and educational campaigns.
