The Connecticut River Watershed Farmers Alliance’s(CRWFA) primary mission is to maintain the level of water quality in the eastern side of Vermont and the western side of New Hampshire by supporting and agricultural producers in their conservation efforts. We host workshops, farmer-led discussions, and monthly meetings to further this goal. Many of these workshops and events are co-sponsored by the White River Natural Resource Conservation District, the University of Vermont, University of New Hampshire, and the NRCS.
In addition to hosting events, we rent a piece of conservation tillage equipment called a No-Till Seeder which allows farmers to plant seeds with minimal disturbance to the soil.
We believe that by giving farmers a voice in the discussion about water quality we can work together to develop policies that support our agricultural communities while maintaining our natural environment.
