Napa Valley has a CanDo attitude.

Napa Valley CanDo believes in the power of many small actions to make a really big difference. We connect, inspire and empower Napa Valley residents like you by making it easy to stay informed and work together to create a strong, caring, inclusive community.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

— Margaret Mead

You can volunteer for one of our dynamic projects, even for just an hour or two, or help one of the many local organizations we support. Each individual action connects to others. Together, we‘re making our Valley and world better.

A quick How-To on starting beans in the garden from our Vice President, Chris Ackley 🫛🌱: “We first dig a hole, and place a strawberry basket in … add a couple of bean seeds… cover with dirt … place a strawberry basket on top, and water. The basket below keeps gophers away and the basket on top keeps the birds away when the bean sprouts.”

Get inspired to take action.
