We have had a great fall in the NYC Watershed! The weather has been beautiful and farmers have had an extended harvesting season. The Watershed Agricultural Council (WAC) has been busy finishing projects on participant farms, Pure Catskills has had a hectic season of markets and festivals, Forestry has been working on a large project that will be showcased in the upcoming months and Easements has been working hard to protect additional land in the Watershed.
On November 12th WAC hosted a meeting for our Advisory Committee at the Agroforestry Resource Center in Acra, NY. Every five years we look to our partners and stakeholders for input and direction of our programs and organization as a whole. Each WAC program presented their successes of the past five years and a workshop was held for future direction. It was a very productive meeting and WAC looks forward to implementing the suggestions of our trusted colleagues in our future planning.
As we approach Thanksgiving we hope you have a wonderful holiday and don’t for get to shop local this giving season!
