Voluntary Stewardship Program (VSP)
Washington State’s Voluntary Stewardship Program (VSP) provides an alternative approach for counties to address our state’s Growth Management Act requirements. 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 a farm landowner 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 the critical area with keeping your agricultural operation economically viable… so it works for you!
Funding will 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 county, your farm, and our environment.
