Agricultural & Equine Stewardship

Horses frolicking in the meadow

Workshops, technical assistance, funding and site visits for hobby and production farmers.

Agriculture is practiced on more than 71,000 acres in the Credit River watershed. Farmers are therefore major land-use holders and key stakeholders in the protection of environmental resources such as water, air, soil and biodiversity.

The Agricultural & Equine Stewardship section of CVC’s website provides environmental resources for those engaged in the business of agriculture.  Here you will find information on how to protect the health of the watershed by implementing agri-environmental beneficial management practices, information on CVC’s Caring for Your Horse and Farm workshop and information on financial and technical support for your environmental improvement projects.

CVC has an Agricultural Outreach Coordinator on staff to assist farmers and equine operators with their land, water and wildlife management needs.
