The Northern California Fibershed (we call this the backyard of the Bay Area) is defined by a 150-mile radius from our headquarters in San Geronimo, California. A roundtrip drive to and from these regions can technically happen in one day, allowing for the affordable transfer of goods and services to be easily accomplished by small producers, which supports the growth of our region’s own textile culture and economy.

The list of counties included in our Fibershed:

Alameda, Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, Colusa, Contra Costa, El Dorado, Fresno, Glenn, Lake, Madera, Marin, Mariposa, Mendocino, Merced, Monterey, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Sacramento, San Benito, San Joaquin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Sierra, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tehama, Tuolumne, Yolo, Yuba

A map of the Fibershed farm producers in our Northern California Fibershed can be found on the Directory of Farm Producers.

    If I were to become a member, how would it work if all the growing/producing/manufacturing etc happens in my area rather than in NoCal?

      Hi Cindy, Thanks for your question. You could form an Affiliate Fibershed, which means that you create your own fibershed project in your region for local members that use local fibers, dyes and labor in their goods. (I sent you an email about this earlier today). Our Producers Program is currently for producers in our Northern California fibershed. But you could start a similar Producers Program within your Affiliate Fibershed. Does this make sense? It would be great to have you involved.

Industrial hemp is a crop with the potential to lower the environmental impacts of textile production, empower small-scale farmers and create jobs. "Harvesting Liberty" is a film about that crop and the inspiring people of the Growing Warriors Project and Fibershed working to reintroduce Industrial Hemp to U.S. farmers.
