On December 12th, the Isanti Soil and Water Conservation District will be hosting an informational meeting for local farmers and agricultural landowners to learn about the voluntary program designed to protect Minnesota’s water by implementing and maintaining farm management practices. Coffee and refreshments to be served.

Participants in the program will receive:

  • Regulatory Certainty: Certified farms will be deemed in compliance should any new State water quality rules or laws be enacted during the 10-year period of certification.
  • Financial and technical assistance: Priority access to dollars and expertise for any farm practices that would improve water quality.
  • Recognition: Stewardship-minded farms will receive recognition from the community for their efforts and a sign that can be displayed on their property.

There is no obligation to sign up in order to attend; it is just an opportunity to learn how you can get involved in protecting water quality in Minnesota and become agricultural water quality certified.

For any questions and to RSVP contact Thomas Zimmermann, Conservation Technician at 763-689-3271 or TZimmermann@isantiswcd.org. If you are unable to attend but are still interested in the program, please contact me.
