The Green Star Farms Initiative is a voluntary, farmer-led educational program designed to raise awareness among farmers about water quality issues; recognize the conservation practices that are already being employed by many farmers and ranchers that contribute to improved water quality, reduced soil erosion, enhanced soil health and increased wildlife habitat; and accelerate the adoption of sound conservation practices to improve water quality.
KSMQ, the PBS member station located in Austin, MN, highlighted the Green Star Farm Initiative during a broadcast of “Farm Connections”. The Green Star Farms episode can be accessed by visiting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jw2rv17a3L0#t=114
