Learn as we Grow Project
New River SWCD won the NACD Urban Agriculture Conservation grant for 2016! This grant will go towards our Learn to Grow Project, which will show local residents how they can feed a family of four with only an 8x8 plot. Most of this project will take place on New River Hill Farm, but SWCD staff will also hold several in-school activities and on-site areas to promote student awareness and interest in gardening and food availability.
