Event description
Webinar for Farmers & Agricultural Landowners on Grants for Conservation Practices

About this event

Thought about planting trees along your creek or putting in a livestock watering system, but put off by the expense? Find out how to get state (Virginia) and federal funding to cover most of the cost of improving your land! Funding is available for fencing, erosion control, tree planting, pollinator meadows, and more.

PLEASE NOTE: This webinar is geared at the professional farm community in the United States. Not a farmer? We plan to host a similar workshop for a general audience in 2022, or check out the video of last year's general audience (non-agricultural) webinar.

Join conservation nonprofit Sustainability Matters for this free virtual event, sponsored by Rockingham Co-operative.

We'll hear from representatives of the Farm Service Agency (FSA), Lord Fairfax Soil and Water Conservation District (LFSWCD), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and Virginia Department of Forestry (DOF). They'll explain the funding they offer, what it covers, and who's eligible.

We'll get the farmer perspective too. Craig Miller of Harrisonburg's Miller Farm will discuss his long experience with conservation cost-share programs, and how he's made them work for him.

The event is free, but registration is required. Upon registering, you will be emailed the link for the Zoom webinar. If you do not receive this link immediately, please let us know. We cannot guarantee to to be available for Zoom or technical issues the day of the event. We'll also sign you up for Sustainability Matters' email list; we never sell your info, and you may unsubscribe at any time.
