USDA Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) is a unique program that helps people protect and develop their economic, natural, and social resources in ways that improve their area's economy, environment, and quality of life. The Iowa Valley RC&D provides ways for Benton, Iowa, Johnson, Linn, Poweshiek, and Tama county residents to plan and implement projects that will make their communities better places to live.
The Iowa Valley Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) Regional Food Initiative, I-Food group has identified the need to support access to organic food, access to resources and training for organic farm production, and support for organic farmers in the region as a result of developing a sustainable plan to promote the integration, utilization and access of locally produced food across the Benton, Iowa, Johnson, Linn, Poweshiek, Tama, and Meskwaki Settlement regions.
The Organic Producer Training Grants are made possible through Frontier's support. These grants are intended to provide support for ongoing training to producers interested in transitioning to or presently utilizing organic practice to produce organically grown food products. The goal of this grant program is to provide training stipends to producers that will further their ability to produce organic food products in Iowa and Cedar Valley regions.
