Project Highlights:

Four Plain Sect farmers and partners from public, private, and nonprofit sectors are collaborating to implement practices that improve the health of both their operation and water quality in a small tributary of Pequea Creek in Paradise Township.

 The whole watershed, community approach to conservation used here is both innovative and effective. Partners come together to share information about needs, plans, and to drive action with the common goal of cleaning up a small section of stream.
