Danny Vincent and James Miller were chosen as Master Conservationists for 2014 by the Edmonson County Conservation District Board of Supervisors for their outstanding achievements in soil and water conservation.
The Master Conservationist program, sponsored by the Kentucky Soil and Water Commission, was established in 1983 to recognize those who have excelled in soil and water conservation and protection, and have completed more than 90 percent of their conservation plan.
Awards were presented by Wayne Thompson, Chairman at the June 16th 2015 Supervisors meeting. The supervisors and staff would like to congratulate both Mr. Vincent and Mr. Miller on their achievements.

Both Mr. Miller and Mr. Vincent have completed conservation practices such as preventing erosion, by not overgrazing their pastures, preserving water quality by using soil tests to determine how much fertilizer to use, which prevents runoff from fertilizers from entering our water table, just to name a couple. Conservation farmers help everyone by following good conservation practices. Please feel free to come by our office at 100 Washington Street to find out what you can do to help conserve our top soil ( which once eroded away takes over 500 years for nature to replace one inch ) and preserve water quality! Everyone can help!
