How many farms in King County have conservation plans?
WHY IT MATTERS
- There is a broad spectrum of environmentally sustainable management practiced by farmers that is not captured by organic certification alone. Considerations such as Salmon Safe practices, water conservation, and carbon emissions reduction or carbon sequestration are all measures that farmers may take to conserve and steward the land. These farms may or may not necessarily be certified organic.
- King Conservation District is currently working to survey and capture the number of farms in King County employing the practices mentioned above.
