This forum will include presentations and discussions on what you can do to protect farmland in your region, as well as on the resources available to strengthen the economic viability of farming in your area. Discussions at this forum will be informed by a recent survey American Farmland Trust administered to local leaders elucidating what tools are needed in order to keep land in farming in local communities. Throughout the evening, there will be opportunities to network with other town and county leaders, to discuss best practices and to workshop current issues. Land Use Training Credits will be offered to local officials.
