Stewardship Materials

Grafton County Conservation District (GCCD) promotes the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD)  natural resource stewardship program.  NACD prepares educational materials based on a natural resource conservation theme available on the NACD website.

The 2019 Stewardship theme is “Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper.”

Soil is an amazing substance. Soil is made of life and soil makes life. “Essentially, all life depends upon the soil … There can be no life without soil and no soil without life; they have evolved together.” – Charles E. Kellogg, USDA Yearbook of Agriculture, 1938
