West Multnomah Conservation District provides free technical support for both organic and non-organic farm operations to reduce the use and cost of fertilizers, install pollinator hedgerows, add cover crops to planting rotations, improve soil quality and production, decrease pests, improve irrigation and achieve organic certification.
