The Delaware Highlands Conservancy is a land trust dedicated to conserving the natural and cultural heritage of the upper Delaware River Watershed. We are committed to sustaining our rural quality of life and focused on the connections between local citizens, a healthy environment and a strong local economy.
We seek to connect our local communities to the importance of actively supporting and sustaining our farms and forests. With the support of our members and strong core of citizen volunteers, the Delaware Highlands Conservancy works to conserve the agricultural and forestlands vital to healthy local foods, clean drinking water, biological diversity and to the overall beauty and quality of life in our region.
Farm Catskills supports farmers and communities whose economic stability is dependent on a viable working landscape. We do this by promoting the environmental and economic value of local farm products and the land from which they come. Farm Catskills works to: develop and support stable markets for farmers’ products, advocating that area residents, schools and other organizations “Buy Local;” connect low-income community members with access to fresh and healthy local foods; create opportunities for beginning farmers to join our agricultural community; and protect and preserve working farm lands
Relying on a network of nearly 300 supporting members, Farm Catskills is a non-profit grassroots community organization conceived by Catskill farmers dedicated to maintaining the region’s farming heritage.
Farmhearts lends a hand to the hands that feed. Their mission is to help family farms in the Catskills, whether by lending assistance through grants, helping to bring added value to a farm's existing products, offering grassroots support for marketing or distribution or helping open the door to the next generation of farmers.
The Farmhearts Fellowship (http://www.farmhearts.org/fellowships.html) has made the development and implementation of Catskills FarmLink possible.
The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is a City agency of nearly 6,000 employees that manages and conserves the City’s water supply; distributes more than one billion gallons of clean drinking water each day to nine million New Yorkers and collects wastewater through a vast underground network of pipes, regulators and pumping stations; and treats the 1.3 billion gallons of wastewater that New Yorkers produce each day in a way that protects the quality of New York Harbor. To achieve these mandates, DEP oversees one of the largest capital construction programs in the region. As the City agency responsible for New York City's environment, DEP also regulates air quality, hazardous waste and critical quality of life issues, including noise.
The Watershed Agricultural Council (also known as “WAC” or “the Council”) works with farm and forest landowners in the New York City Watershed region to protect water quality on behalf of nine million New York residents. The Council uses Whole Farms Plans, Forest Management Plans, and Conservation Easements to help farmers, forest professionals and private landholders address water pollution concerns on properties located in the Croton and Catskill/Delaware watersheds.
The Council is internationally recognized as a successful example of public-private partnership. Watershed management that benefits the general public is achieved through incentivized, on-site practices performed on private lands; this partnership model is referred to as “Payment for EcoServices,” or PES. Through PES, private landowners are surface-water stewards of New York City’s drinking water. Landowner willingness to participate in WAC’s upstream water quality programs continues to provide New York City residents with over 1.1 billion gallons of clean drinking water each day.
