What does success look like for the Farming in the Floodplain Project?
Our primary goal is to understand and advocate for the needs of the agricultural community in the Clear Creek area and communicate their needs to decision- and policy-makers. To do this, we will convene technical experts and farmers to analyze questions about conditions, trends, and pressures affecting agricultural viability in Clear Creek. Through public, small group and/or one-on-one meetings, we will engage with the agricultural community to clarify their needs and interests.
The final products of the Farming in the Floodplain Project will provide farmers with technical information they may need to improve the viability of farm businesses in Clear Creek with changes in flooding patterns and land use, and provide Surface Water Management and policy-makers with information they need to support agricultural viability in Clear Creek.
