USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Farm Service Agency (FSA), and Virginia State University (VSU) have teamed up to develop strategies for increasing awareness of and participation in USDA programs.

This workshop is designed to help farmers improve production and provide financial incentives for environmental practices, finance new markets facility, and increase sources and access for locally grown agricultural products.

Representatives from NRCS, FSA and Cooperative Extension will share information about what their agencies have to offer those in farming.
