The Geneva County Soil and Water Conservation District held a press conference Friday.

They explained to farmers and ranchers what they do and how they can help.

The organization helps cities and counties with irrigation problems.

They also have a grant program that helps educate children on farming and agriculture issues.

The group works closely with government officials to make sure money any extra money goes to farming.

"It's very important to have a group like this. I'm pleased to help fund this at the Montgomery level so that we do have a resource center, I guess you would call this group, kind of like a resource center for our area to help farmers, " says Al. Sen. Harri Anne Smith.

Last year the group worked to make sure 2.6 million dollars was given to farmers.
