Projects and Campaigns
‘Weed Control and Irrigation Options for Your Home Garden’
This informational video was filmed and produced by myself while narrated by several individuals from partner agencies. It was presented as part of a ‘Conservation Innovation Grant’ research from the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Partners in the project include the Towaliga Soil & Water Conservation District, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Service and USDA-NRCS.
‘Soil Sampling Basics’
As lockdowns and social distancing became the ‘new normal’ during the COVID-19 pandemic, I worked with the county agent of local UGA Extension Offices-Lamar and Upson Counties to produce informational videos for our local farmers and landowners during the summer and fall planting seasons. I filmed and produced this video as well. This video was presented by the UGA Cooperative Extension Service and Lamar and Towaliga Soil & Water Conservation Districts. It has been shared across many media channels.
Beef Cattle 101 Educational Series
This 10-part monthly workshop series was launched in late summer/early fall 2019, and it was developed as the first-of-its-kind in the state of Georgia. I served as Program Coordinator for the series as part of the Lamar County Soil & Water Conservation District. The series was planned in partnership with the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service and the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Service. The latter part of the series was shifted to online meetings as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lamar County Wetlands Nature Trail Renovation (2019)
In February 2019, the Lamar County Soil & Water Conservation District received a community grant to spearhead a renovation phase for the local wetlands nature trail, which is directly accessible by local middle and high schools in the county. This process took several months, but the community grant went toward some much needed physical repairs to the trail. The Lamar County SWCD Board of Supervisors and the Lamar County Parks & Recreation Department worked hard to renovate the trail and make it appealing for school students and adult citizens alike once again. Below you can find the newly published, bi-fold Wetlands Nature Trail brochure (distributed locally and available at the Barnesville-Lamar County Chamber of Commerce in Barnesville, Georgia.)
