Sustainability Matters will host a free virtual workshop for landowners from 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 10 on grants for conservation practices.

There is no minimum acreage required for several of the programs. Funding is available for wildlife and pollinator habitats, tree planting, stream fencing, rain gardens, rainwater harvesting, invasives control and green roofs. Agricultural practices like livestock waterers and stream exclusion are also eligible.

The workshop will feature representatives from the Farm Service Agency, Lord Fairfax Soil and Water Conservation District, Natural Resources Conservation Service, and Jeff and Ali Carithers, who will discuss their decades-long experience installing large-scale habitat and pollinator plantings, some through conservation cost-share programs, and Sari Carp will share her own recent experience with smaller scale habitats.
