Our team has been working for a couple of years to share the benefits of cover crops for farms! The passion and knowledge that cover crops, as a practice on conservation farms, are solutions to problems is not something we can keep secret.

This spreading of the gift of cover crops to others had allowed our team to meet and work many farmers, organizations and people who are VERY passionate and knowledgeable.  Below is a list of a few of our favorite resources to turn to when looking for ideas on how to Grow More Cover Crops!

About Beth Diesch

As the Outreach Coordinator, I spend my time finding ways to help more people and reach the District farther and wider (to the borders of the county). I also coordinate the education programs and write grants. Learning, creating, promoting and connecting are what I do. I enjoy writing about ways and ideas to teach kids, as well as, simple and easy things adults can do to be wise when using natural resources.
