Licking Soil & Water is a Certified Local Sponsor for the Ohio Department of Agriculture's 2020 Local Agricultural Easement Purchase Program (LAEPP).

Soil & Water will receive funds from Clean Ohio to preserve farmland under the Local Agricultural Easement Purchase Program (LAEPP) in 2020.
To be considered for permanent protection, the farm must remain in agriculture production in perpetuity. Selected farms must be at least 40 acres, actively engaged in farming, participate in the Current Agricultural Use Valuation (CAUV) program, demonstrate good stewardship of the land, have the support of their local government and not lay directly in the path of development.
