Soil Centric's Pro Tip
Get to know your local RCD office and the agents that work there,and if you are a land manager of some kind, make sure they know about your work and invite them out to your property. While each office is different RCD's are usually one of the best sources of information about county, state and federal funding opportunities for implementing conservation practices. If you are new to agriculture and would like to understand the local scene in your area and the opportunities and challenges of adopting carbon farming practices, sign up for your local RCD's newsletter and attend events they might host.
