For Earth Day 2010, the National Association of Wheat Growers decided to get the views of a few "first conservationists" — farmers — on tape. In three parts, NAWG Second Vice President Erik Younggren, a wheat grower from Hallock, Minn., and Secretary-Treasurer Bing Von Bergen, a wheat grower from Moccasin, Mont., talk about what they do to conserve the land, how farming practices have changed over the years and what they'd like urban dwellers to know about farming and environmentalism.
NAWG is also celebrating Earth Day with America's Heartland, the public television show about American agriculture that reaches a million viewers per showing. A special Heartland Earth Day Webisode is available here.
