Food Grows Where Water Flows is a slogan of the California Farm Water Coalition. CFWC was formed in 1989 in the midst of a six-year drought to increase public awareness of agriculture's efficient use of water and promote the industry's environmental sensitivity regarding water. In the last 35 years, we have been growing public awareness of agriculture's water use and providing a unifying voice for agricultural water users.
