There’s a lot to love about the Capital Region, and not just because Valentine’s Day is around the corner. One thing we love covering year-round is the innovation in our area — our region’s problem solvers are frequently searching for ways to benefit our land, our people, even our universe (see: this week’s space-focused startup). And we love that innovation can mean finding new solutions to preserve long standing institutions, like our farms. In February’s cover story, we highlighted the organizations working to secure the future of Northern California’s farmland and the people who run it.
What do you love most about our region? Perhaps the abundance of trees, craft coffee or diversity? There’s a lot to choose from.
Here’s the latest:
A creative agency CEO shares how volunteering benefits the community as well as your business; the next generation of farmers is blossoming thanks to supportive training programs; CALSTRS’ first woman CEO shares how she gets it all done in a day; a Yolo County startup aims to recycle space debris while in orbit; and Evil HR Lady addresses the dilemma of what to do when a toxic employee threatens your influence.
