A recent announcment from the province including funding to help farm projects do some good for the environment.
MPP for Dufferin- Caledon Sylvia Jones says area farmers will receive $83,317 for 12 phosphorus reduction projects for waterways connected to Lake Erie.
The improvements have come through the Lake Erie Agriculture Demonstrating Sustainability - or LEADS - initiative.
Examples of LEADS projects include planting over-wintering cover crops to improve soil health and reduce erosion, as well as planting more vegetation as a buffer between agricultural operations and waterways.
Jones says the Great Lakes are vitally important to the people of Dufferin-Caledon, and this will improve the water quality.
Reducing the amount of phosphorus in Lake Erie will reduce algae blooms, which can be harmful to the environment and humans.
