FCNRCD at the 2022 Annual Field Day at Borderview Research Farm hosted by UVM Ext. NWCS

On July 28, 2022, the staff and Supervisors of the Franklin County Natural Resources Conservation District participated in the Annual Field Day at Borderview Research Farm hosted by the University of Vermont Extension Northwest Crops & Soils Program.


FCNRCD hosted a table in the vendors booth and our own Katy Dynarski presented alongside Alissa White of UVM Ext, and the team at NRCS, to discuss soil health and climate resilience as part of an afternoon intensive.


It was great to see the ~250 farmers, students, service providers, and community members all back together after a hiatus that lasted a couple of years due to the COVID pandemic.


We hope to see more folks at lots of other events throughout the rest of this field season!
