Trevor talks to River Guardians in a field of pennycress

Because FMR's River Guardian advocates have been so critical in advancing clean-water crops, we thought they deserved a literal field trip to see and taste the results of their efforts.

In the last few years, River Guardian advocacy has increased state investment in Forever Green's crop research and granted local businesses and farmers the resources they need to grow the market. Millions of dollars are now going to continuous living cover crops and Minnesota businesses that create the demand for them because our advocates care about the river and took the time to speak up to lawmakers.

If you missed this tour, check out the pictures below as a sort of virtual field trip.  And if you're not a River Guardian yet, sign up here, and we'll hope to see you at our future events.
