Environmental Stewardship Award Open for Applications

The Nova Scotia Environmental Farm Plan team is now accepting nominations for the 2014 Environmental Farm Stewardship Award.  Have you or a farmer in your area implemented projects to protect water, soil quality or wildlife habitat?  Maybe you use improved soil management practices, have installed energy efficient technologies, or demonstrate water conservation.  Farmers are doing a lot of environmental sustainable activities every day; this award is an opportunity to give them recognition for their work.  Other projects or areas that would support the application are innovative waste handling and storage, proper fuel storage, nutrient management activities, and biodiversity. You can nominate your neighbour, a friend, CSA Farm, or submit an application for your own farm.  For more information, please contact Kathryn at 902-893-2293.
