Voluntary Stewardship Program​

The Voluntary Stewardship Program (VSP) provides an alternative approach for Washington counties to address the state's Growth Management Act requirements on lands where agricultural activities take place. The program uses a watershed-based, incentive-based process to protect critical areas, promote viable agriculture, and encourage cooperation among diverse stakeholders.

What does VSP mean for you?

If you’re an ag producer in San Juan County, the program can be a big help in your operation:
 

  • VSP is voluntary and non-regulatory. You can choose whether to do a stewardship plan for your farm.

  • If you choose to do a stewardship plan, you will balance protecting critical areas with keeping your agricultural operation economically viable… so it works for you!

  • Funding may be available to help you put in practices that protect critical areas, such as fences or improved pastures and paddocks.

  • You can help by participating in your county VSP work group – building the future of your farm, your county, and our environment.
