2017 Conservation Education Workshop Series

For the second year in a row, we've partnered with the La Plata Conservation District to provide Conservation Education Workshops!



We aim to inspire youth and adults to become stewards of our natural resources by exposing them to sustainable agriculture and soil and water conservation, thereby building our local agricultural capacity in the long run. Together we can improve the climate resiliency and food security of our community.

Check out these great learning opportunities! (Workshops for backyard gardeners and large landowners/farmers!)

Psst! They are all free! Enjoy.
