Since October, 2013, a group of concerned and interested growers, farmers and neighbors have been getting together to talk and learn about water quality with an focus on fecal coliform levels in the Ten Mile Creek Watershed. In addition to being educated on water quality issues, we have had informative speakers discussing septic tank self-inspections, field buffers and the need of farmers and growers to develop a local water coalition. We sponsored a discussion on fish-friendly culverts.
Aside from understanding the issues farmers and growers and creek neighbors confront, I have met a wide variety of county residents. I feel fortunate to have this opportunity to meet my neighbors. Join us. We need your input. We want to know your concerns and what it's like working and living in the Ten Mile Creek watershed. Our monthly meetings are on the second Wednesday at Bellewood Acres at 6:30 p.p. Everyone is welcome. Sometimes we even have homemade cookies!
