Leading by example.

Improving water quality in the St. Croix and Red Cedar River Basins by developing farmer leadership for increased on-farm conservation.

What We Do

Conservation agriculture. We promote practices that benefit soil health, farm profitability, and water quality. Find incentives in your watershed.

Farmer leadership. When farmers are engaged as leaders to reduce agriculture’s impact on water quality, we get better results over the long term. Contact us to get involved.

Education and outreach. We share knowledge with one another and promote shared learning through field days, workshops, and seminars. See upcoming events.
