Seeding Conservation Areas
The Soil and Water Conservation District can assist you in the seeding of conservation areas. For smaller areas of 5 acres or less we can custom seed your site with our 4 foot no-till seeder. Rates are based on delivery and tach hours used to seed the site. For larger areas the DeKalb County Pheasants Forever Chapter has no-till drills available to rent for habitat planting within DeKalb County. Rental rate is $10/ acre for the drill and delivery is $100. Please contact the Soil and Water Conservation District office to make arrangements and to find out more information.

Rainwater harvesting is always beneficial, whether the water is used for one houseplant or an entire garden. The Soil and Water Conservation District has for sale 55 gallon rain barrels that were made from food-grade drums that use to carry food products such as olives and pickles. These barrels are small enough to fit on most residential or commercial lots.
