Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS)

NRCS puts nearly 70 years of experience to work in assisting owners of America's private land with conserving their soil, water, and other natural resources. Local, state and federal agencies and policymakers also rely on our expertise. NRCS delivers technical assistance based on sound science and suited to a customer's specific needs. Cost shares and financial incentives are available in some cases. Most work is done with local partners. The partnership with local conservation districts serves almost every county in the nation, and the Caribbean and Pacific Basin. Participation in our programs is voluntary.

 

 

National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD)

The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) is the nonprofit organization that represents America's 3,000 conservation districts and the 17,000 men and women who serve on their governing boards. Conservation districts are local units of government established under state law to carry out natural resource management programs at the local level. Districts work with millions of cooperating landowners and operators to help them manage and protect land and water resources on all private lands and many public lands in the United States

 

Vermont Department Agriculture, Food and Markets

The Agricultural Development Division was created in 1975 to increase the economic viability of Vermont's agricultural sector. Agricultural Development's statutory responsibilities (detailed in 6V.S.A. 2963) are summarized as follows:

  • to increase the agricultural uses of land and other resources;
  • to develop and maintain price reporting systems and producer directories;
  • to identify and develop new markets and products;
  • to develop identification and advertising programs for Vermont products; and
  • to promote research on agricultural products.

These legislative mandates have led to Agricultural Development's activity and leadership role in developing local, regional, national and international markets for Vermont products.

For Vermont's agricultural industry to remain viable and sustainable, it must remain profitable. The primary goal of the Agricultural Development Division is to encourage the profitability of Vermont agriculture through the development of a sound business infrastructure.
