NRCS Organic Initiative Sign-up: 1/16
Certified organic farmers, farmers who are exempt from certification, and farmers transitioning to organic production can receive technical and financial assistance related to resource conservation on their farms! The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) administers an "Organic Initiative" that provides funding and technical information on soil, water, air and other natural resource concerns on the farm. The next application cut-off date is January 16 for help with cover crops, pollinator habitat and season extension (among other conservation measures). Talk to your local office for more information or contact Justine (908-371-1111, jcook(at)nofanj(dot)com).
