Environmentally Sustainable Agriculture
Environmental Streamline Program
Lamont County’s Agricultural Service Board is pleased to note that the County will be participating in a new the Environmental Streamline Program.
The Environmental Streamline Program is a provincially funded and industry directed program whose purpose is to encourage a balanced, integrated approach to the environmental problems facing the agricultural industry. We focus on education and awareness on different agricultural and environmental issues affecting landowners and producers. For Lamont County, this entails collaborating with our neighboring municipality, Beaver County.
Tori Dey is Lamont County’s Assistant Agricultural Fieldman and is responsible for the environmental services. Her primary focus is to promote sustainable agriculture through education and awareness, by running different workshops and promoting Growing Forward Programs. There are 3 Growing Forward programs that she is available to help producers with. They are Integrated Crop management, Manure Management, Grazing and Winter feeding Management. With the launch of Growing Forward 2, the Federal and Provincial government have scheduled a whole new line of funding for producers to access through different grants. She is also a register TA for administering the Environmental Farm Plan program. For more information on these programs please contact Tori Dey.
