The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is an agency of the US Department of Agriculture that is responsible for assisting landowners to improve our soil, water, air, plants, wildlife and energy use. Ensuring productive lands in harmony with a healthy environment is the vision of NRCS.

This publication describes the opportunities available to landowners interested in establishing elderberries on their property.  Landowners have many resources at their disposal through the NRCS Conservation Technical Assistance and Financial Assistance opportunities. Establishing elderberries on private land and managing elderberries for aesthetic benefit, wildlife benefit, production benefit, or a combination of all three uses is consistent with NRCS goals and vision.
