This event is hosted by the Farmers of Mill Creek Watershed Council, a group of farmers in the Mill Creek watershed who have come together because we care about the soil, water and farmers. They are focused on adopting more environmentally friendly farming practices that will ensure clean water and healthy soils for future generations while maintaining or improving profitability. The ultimate goal of the Farmers of Mill Creek Watershed Council is to be stewards of environmental sustainability for our land and water in our watershed.
