Soil Conservation Districts Free Advice from Top Professionals! throughout the year,


from pasture walks to


seminars on manure management. Schedules can be found on each county’s SCD website or obtained by calling the county offi ce. SCD also works closely with the University


of Maryland agricultural programs and can link farm owners with professors to help answer both general farming questions and issues that might be more specifi c to their land. SCD hosts Legislative Tours for elected offi - cials to help them understand the specifi c needs of the farming community in their regions. Another SCD program is the Earth Team Volunteer program which was created to allow


people of all ages an opportunity to learn about soil conservation practices by shadowing SCD staff . “T ey can come and learn what it is we do as well as go on site visits and such with us,” said Brewster. Some SCD offi ces also have farming equip-


ment for rent at reasonable rates. In Mont- gomery County, farm owners can rent manure spreaders, no-till drills and more. Training for each piece of equipment must be done ahead of time. SCD will even deliver and pick up the equipment. T e resource conservation section of the Maryland Department of Agriculture website


including


has several PDF pamphlets that are specifi c to horse own- ers,


management


tips, protecting water, creating a heavy use pad and other equine related topics and can be found at https://mda.maryland.gov/
