Conservation, Connection and Capital: Bringing EQIP Support to Your Farm

Live Webinar -- April 24, 2024 -- 10-11 am ET

Tune in for this one-hour webinar to guide farmers through all they need to know to apply for and implement Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) support and funding. This free webinar will provide participants with sure-footed next steps and connections with people who can help, from identifying conservation concerns to completing a successful contract. Registrants receive access to a summary, follow-up resources and the event recording. Learn from OAK staff members, a Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) specialist and experienced farmers Cortney Moses and Paul Dengel. Cortney and Paul will share their farm story of the EQIP application and funding process and its on-farm benefits for GoodThymes Organic Farm in Williamsburg, KY. This event is supported by a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).
