Ohio EPA Awards Farming Grant to Wood County SWCD

Ohio EPA Education Grant to Wood County SWCD Will Support Best Farming Practices

Preserving topsoil and learning how crop rotation improves soil health is the focus of Wood Soil and Water Conservation District’s (Wood SWCD) Demonstrating Innovative Conservation Practices.

The SWCD and Ohio State University Extension will host a series of workshops using the sample plots to demonstrate various tillage practices, cover crops and conservation practices that can reduce phosphorus runoff to Lake Erie and its tributaries. A drive-it-yourself conservation tour will be in place for several months, allowing residents and producers to observe these innovations during an entire growing season.

The project is being funded in part with a $14,903 Ohio EPA grant awarded to Wood SWCD. Seven grants were awarded statewide for $261,183. The Ohio Environmental Education Fund provides funding each year for environmental education projects serving kindergarten through university students, the general public and the regulated community.

Eligible grant recipients include environmental groups, public and private schools, colleges and universities, trade or professional organizations, businesses and state and local governments. Letters of intent for the next grant round are due to Ohio EPA no later than Jan. 8, 2016, and applications are due no later than Jan. 15, 2016. Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact the Ohio Environmental Education Fund on the web or at (614) 644-2873 to discuss project ideas.
