Nutrient Management Planning Assistance
Soil sampling, class preparation, and personalized assistance throughout UVM Extension’s winter Nutrient Management Planning class for small livestock farms, all available at no cost to farmers. Participants end the class with a certified Nutrient Management Plan. Made possible by the NRCS’s Regional Conservation Partnership Program.
Trees for Streams
We are currently seeking participants who want trees planted along streams, ditches, lakes or ponds on their own land. The Conservation District will provide a preliminary consultation, plant materials, and planting labor; the landowner agrees to maintain the site for ten years. Contact us by August 31 for more information!
Every spring and fall the District offers trout for stocking ponds through Hy On A Hill Trout Farm. Stop in during early spring or early fall to place your order.
Every spring the District holds a bare root tree sale, providing high-quality trees at great prices to landowners throughout the region. Orders accepted January through March.
NRCS Funding Prioritization
Every summer the local District has the opportunity to revise the local ranking questions used to prioritize applications for financial assistance from the USDA-NRCS. What do you think are the most pressing natural resources concerns in Franklin County, and what practices will best address them?
