From large farms to individual lots, the Sherburne SWCD has been providing educational, technical, and financial assistance to landowners in Sherburne County for many years.
The District can work with you to restore native prairie, improve pasture or plant tree seedlings for erosion control or wildlife habitat. Our office is equipped with a tractor, Truax No-Till Drill, Vicon broadcast seeder, and access to a tree planter. We do the planting. For more information, contact Miranda Wagner at 763-280-7521.
SWCD offers planting service at a cost of $50.00/acre ($200.00 minimum) plus $100.00 Mobilization Fee.
