In order to help
streamline communication and efforts among all of the groups funded by the
Producer-Led Watershed Protection Program, DATCP has recently initiated the
development of regional teams within the Producer-Led network to
better utilize funding, share resources and provide more networking and
training opportunities to farmers within the program.
These teams will provide more direct assistance to each group, local trainings and events,
shared resources, staff support and increased communication across the network.
The state is broken out into four quadrants and the regional teams consist of
professionals from the University of Wisconsin, University of Wisconsin-
Extension, UW Discovery Farms, non-profits, agricultural associations and
Wisconsin DNR. Each regional team will work to further identify the needs of
each group with that region and then tailor programming to fit those needs as they continue to be developed.
Each region has one or more group
leaders that will work to coordinate communication and information-sharing. Contact information for each regional team is on the right sidebar.
