PA Farmers Union Membership Growth Offers Opportunity for Conservation Districts

As the lead sponsor for the PACD/SCC Joint Annual Conference, the Pennsylvania Farmers Union (PFU) sought to connect with conservation districts as part of their efforts to reinvigorate the organization. The mission of the PFU is to enhance the quality of life of family farmers – whom districts work with daily.

For the remainder of the calendar year, Pennsylvania Farmers Union will donate $10 of every new membership or renewal to the member’s local conservation district (if so desired by the member). While $10 may not seem like a huge amount, to PFU, it is a demonstration of a commitment to the important work of conservation districts. Of course, PFU also welcomes conservation district employees and board members, particularly those whose families are farming, as members of the Farmers Union so you can add to the legislative voice of the organization.

Kim Miller, PFU president and member of the Westmoreland Conservation District board, invites you to spread the word about this partnership opportunity. Click here for membership information.

Please contact Executive Vice-President Hannah Smith with any questions.
