  A proposed hands-on "incubator farm” for young would-be farmers next to Rohnert Park has generated protests from nearby residents. So the project is being revised to ease their concerns.

The 45-acre Young-Armos property was purchased by the county’s Ag and Open Space District for $370,000 in 1997. Rohnert Park Mayor Gina Belforte is sympathetic to the Rohnert Park residents who would strongly prefer that nothing be changed on it.
