Welcome to the IOC website! The
Inland Orange Conservancy is a
non-profit 501c3 project focusing
on citrus in the Inland Empire.
core objectives are the following:
1. SAVE THE GROVES!
Most of our groves will have disappeared by the end of this
decade. Now is the time to choose which ones to save before it
is too late. IOC makes groves sustainable by connecting local
growers to local consumers in its "Share of the Crop" program.
2. SPREAD THE WORD!
Our Inland history and heritage are founded on the orange!
IOC does outreach to educate our community on our citrus
heritage and our citrus present thru programs, tastings, grove
walks, and school activities. Learn More...
3. FEED THE HUNGRY!
Commercial agriculture is incredibly wasteful. In search of
"Big & Beautiful" huge volumes of delicious food are left to
rot. IOC gleans this fruit and gets it to the Inland Empire
needy, via its "Thanks a Ton" gleaning program. Learn More...
