Last year, the Extension Foundation launched a monthly story lead contest in partnership with Farm Journal in the Farm Journal Monthly Story Lead Contest subgroup here in Connect Extension. Monthly winners, along with their Extension Directors and Administrators, have the chance to work with Farm Journal to further develop their story and have it published in Farm Journal media. The topic area for the January 2021 contest was about Ecosystem Service Supporting Practices & Opportunities for Farmers to Unlock Revenue Streams Based Upon Natural Resource Stewardship
Susan Jaster from Lincoln University Cooperative Extension submitted the winning story lead, SARE project :Regenerative Practices find Free Ecoservices. Congrats to Susan and Lincoln University! We look forward to seeing your story published by Farm Journal!
