Ag Erosion & Sedimentation Plan Workshop

For farmers who do not have an NRCS Conservation Plan and disturb more than 5,000 square feet of soil a year. 
February 28 and March 7, 2018 (both sessions are required)
5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

No cost to attend, but registration is required.
This two-part workshop will guide participants through the creation of their own Ag Erosion & Sedimentation Plan. Farm owners will create their farm map and plan crop rotations to express their farm management in written form so that it satisfies regulations.
To register, email Dan Griffith at dan@wcdpa.com or call Sandy Donovan at 724-837-5271. Please include your farm address with your registration so that your farm maps will be ready for the workshops.

Manure Management Plan Writing Workshops For farmers

These workshops will help farmers write a Manure Management Plan, which is one of the requirements in Pennsylvania of having animals on your property. It is also required if you import manure from neighbors or layer houses. Participants should be able to complete their plan during the workshop.
