Published Feb. 7, 2012 | Discuss this article on Facebook

The Cuyahoga Soil and Water Conservation District is the recipient of one of 12 grants awarded by the Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation that supports programs and projects focusing on agricultural education and ecological and/or economic development.

Conservation From the Ground Up: From Soil to a Healthy Ecosystem, the program developed by the Cuyahoga SWCD planned for early July, will raise awareness of how healthy soils provide a basis for a better environment and how bio-diversity in urban areas has great potential for increasing pollinator habitat to benefit larger urban farming initiatives.

Cuyahoga Farm Bureau will assist in local outreach to the community and help provide materials for local high school classroom use.
