Last Clean Fields Campaign Visit


Melissa and Sandy talk with a Farmer McKenzie

Recently NEPT conducted the last round of visits for the “Clean Fields Campaign.”  This marked the end of a 6 month observation period and NEPT will begin tallying the final scores of each farmer.  The farmers are being judged in categories like:

  • proper land usage
  • organic techniques
  • integrated pest management
  • waste control
  • water management

There are a total of 11 farmers from Logwood Hanover and Silver Spring Westmoreland participating in the competition.  NEPT will have the wining farmers chosen in the near future.  There will be a final awards ceremony sometime in June.
