SWCDs in the Spotlight on PBS Show

On April 12, 2018, NNSWCD Staff and several local farmers were interviewed by Sherri McKinney, Senior Producer at Virginia Farm Bureau, for an episode of “Real Virginia”, Farm Bureau’s weekly television program that airs on PBS.  The thirty minute program focusing on farming efforts in the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula aired several weeks later.    The segment focusing on the work of Soil and Water Conservation Districts included familiar faces such as NNSWCD Staff explaining the role that Virginia’s Soil & Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) serve in agriculture, and local farmers Randy Packett and David Hudnall, who are both past recipients of the Clean Water Farm Award.

Chesapeake Bay Commission Releases New Policy Report

The tri-state legislative Chesapeake Bay Commission (CBC) has released its new policy report on agriculture technical assistance, “Boots on the Ground: Improving Technical Assistance for Farmers”. The report documents the escalating need for more technical assistance to guide farmers in planning and installing pollution control practices.   The VASWCD served as the voice of the Districts in discussions and during the development of this report.

As noted by Commission Chairman State Representative Garth Everett (R-PA), “With the overwhelming amount of reliance on agriculture to help clean up the Bay, there simply aren’t enough ‘boots on the ground’ to provide the help needed to farmers to get the job done.”  The importance of adequate and dedicated funding for local Soil and Water Conservation Districts to support the strong farm conservation efforts cannot be overstated.
