Farm conservation workshop is Thursday in Tiverton

Posted

TIVERTON — Are you an agricultural producer or a woodlot owner who has been curious about the potential of your land?  Funding may be available for conservation practices on your farm or woodlot!  The Rhode Island Conservation Districts have partnered with the USDA- Natural Resources Conservation Service to hold three workshops in May and June 2013.

One of these will be in Tiverton, this Thursday, May 23, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Sandywoods Farm, 73 Muse Way.

Workshops will focus on programs designed to improve natural resource quality while enhancing agricultural and forest production on land through the Environmental Quaility Incentives Program (EQIP).

NRCS programs enable landowners to solve resource issues from soil erosion to irrigation to simply conserving open space.

The workshop format will present special interests stations (including forestry, agriculture, livestock, wildlife, easements  and greenhouse operations) and allow for focus on specific programs and practices.

Space is limited. Contact your Conservation District to make a reservation (recommended) at 816-5667 .
