The USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) helps America’s farmers, ranchers and forest landowners conserve the nation’s soil, water, air and other natural resources. All programs are voluntary and offer science-based solutions that benefit both the landowner and the environment. They provide one-on-one, personalized advice on the best solutions to meet the unique conservation and business goals of those who grow our nation’s food and fiber.

 

 

The Need

Each year, the National Organization of Professional Black Natural Resources Conservation Service Employees recognizes a farmer as the recipient of the Lloyd Wright Small Farmer Award. The award nomination process requires a video entry. NRCS often works with those nominated for the award and is a key entity in making award nominations.

 

 

The Solution

The goal of this project was the successful completion of a short video (around 5 minutes in length) and supporting still photography that profiled Kimberly Ratcliff on her ranch in Oakwood, Texas, and the conservation work she has done with the NRCS. We were excited to get our drone out and capture great aerial footage of Kimberly’s ranch. The video and supporting photographs were exhibited at the National Organization of Professional Black Natural Resources Conservation Service Employees Conference as part of the Lloyd Wright Small Farmer Award program.
