Steve Phillips has been a great asset to the Soil & Water Conservation board, and after 12 years of service, we bid him a fond farewell. He has always reached out for new ideas on farming, and is willing to try diﬀerent approaches. His interest and passion for sustainable farming brought a new perspective to our board, and by working closely with NRCS, he has implemented many projects to support these beliefs. He has been a pleasure to work with and we consider him not only a coworker, but a friend. He engages the agricultural community and agencies to learn and also share his experiences in his diverse operation, which has been a great beneﬁt to Clermont SWCD board and employees, and to NRCS. Thank you, Steve… you will be greatly missed!
