Description
Foundation E.A.R.T.H.was a nonprofit foundation established by farmers in Illinois to support and encourage the adoption of technologically advanced, environmentally sound farming practices. The Harmony Farms project certifies farms that have adopted environmentally sound practices. CAE helped Foundation E.A.R.T.H. set up a home page to gather and exchange information among farmers and improve public understanding of new agricultural technologies. CAE also helped the Foundation develop criteria to identify Harmony Farms candidates. We put a self-help test on-line to help farmers evaluate their practices.

Outcomes
Home page and directory of environmentally friendly farms.
