Free “Writing Your Own Manure Management Plan” Workshop

 

All farms that generate or apply manure to fields must have a Manure Management Plan (MMP) to be in compliance with PA State Law.  This includes anyone who has horse or hobby farms.  Did you know that PA Department of Environmental Protection is doing compliance inspections in York County?  Are you prepared?  Don’t miss this free opportunity!

The York County Conservation District is offering a free “Writing Your Own Manure Management Plan” Workshop on Friday, March 1, 2019, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the York County Annex Building, 118 Pleasant Acres Rd, York, PA.  The goal of this workshop is for participants to complete their MMP in one day.  Attendees will receive a copy of the updated Manure Management Manual and the presentations will include best manure management practices and guide participants through a step by step process for developing their MMP.  Time will be allotted throughout the presentations for one-on-one assistance.  Light refreshments will be provided.  A lunch break will be on your own.  The event is free but registration is required by Friday, February 22, 2019. Register ASAP, to have ample time to gather necessary materials needed to complete your MMP. Please call 717-840-7430 to register.

Financial support for this project is provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection through the Chesapeake Bay Implementation Grant, the Clean Water Fund and the Chesapeake Bay Regulatory and Accountability Program (CBRAP).
