Spring is upon us in the NYC Watershed! Farms are welcoming lamb and calves, the sap is flowing and the days are getting longer. This time of year is always hectic as we are finishing our
Pure Catskills Membership drive and returning from a great weekend at the
International Food and Restaurant Show, held March 6-8 in New York City. Our Forestry staff has been busy bringing you the most up-to-date information on Maple Syrup production on their new website
MyWoodlot.com and our Agriculture staff has been busy preparing for another season of Whole Farm Planning.

At the Watershed Agricultural Council, we celebrate agriculture and farming everyday. Our participants are not only stewards of the NYC Watershed, but

Statistically, each American farmer provides food for 144 people everyday. That makes farming one of the most important and often overlooked occupations. With population rising, the demand of agriculture and farming will steadily increase as the demand for food climbs.
Celebrate Agriculture today and everyday with us! For more information on how we support farming in the NYC Watershed and Catskills visit:
