You can contribute to the Berkeley County Farmland Protection program in several ways! If you are interested in a financial contribution, know that your gift may be tax deductible as we are a 501(3)c organization. In addition, the Board strives to first identify matching funds when we purchase a conservation easement, so your gift will be doubled by being matched with monies from our acquisition fund.
Another way you can contribute is by volunteering your time! Our board consists of volunteers who serve four year terms and are appointed by the County Council. If time commitment to serving on our board is too daunting, we are always looking for volunteers to assist in our day-to-day operations. Visiting applicant properties, helping with our annual monitoring visits, or assisting in our office are all valuable ways to help with our program.
