What is VSP?

The Spokane Conservation District is proud to announce the Voluntary Stewardship Program (VSP). It’s an alternative approach to protect and enhance critical areas within the area where agricultural activities are conducted while maintaining and improving the long-term viability of agriculture in the state of Washington and reducing the conversion of farmland to other uses.

We have recently formed a work group to develop the Spokane County VSP. The goal is to have a local, collaborative group of stakeholders that represent multiple industries. They will work to create a watershed-based, collaborative stewardship planning process that uses voluntary, incentive-based practices. 

More information about VSP can be found online from the Washington State Conservation Commission.

Work Group Meetings, Members & Staff

The VSP formed a workgroup representing various stakeholder groups. It was approved by the Spokane County Board of County Commissioners.
