Join us for our annual in-person event for all producer-led watershed groups in the state, hosted by DATCP! This workshop is a fantastic opportunity to learn about how other groups are using farmer-led strategies to improve water quality and soil health in their watersheds. All group members are invited to attend, but at least one farmer and one collaborator from each group who received funding in 2023 must attend.

This event is hosted primarily for producer-led groups. Registration will be capped and we ​will prioritize farmer-led group members, as well as direct collaborators and partners to groups. We always welcome other entities interested in our groups to register to listen and learn, so we will be maintaining a first come, first serve "Friends of the Program" registration to ensure we first have enough room for all groups to register.
