The Farm Farmington! initiative was started in 2017 as part of a National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) Urban Agriculture Conservation Grant. The purpose of the project was for San Juan SWCD to provide conservation technical assistance and program support to the current upwelling of community agriculture initiatives in our District, and facilitate the support of urban agriculture in the region.
