Covid-19 has illuminated how essential agriculture is to upholding resilient food systems and community health and well-being. Yet poorly planned development continues to threaten food security and open space.
Join the Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network at 1 p.m. Eastern, Tuesday, July 21, to learn about findings from American Farmland Trust’s recently released report, The State of the States. The report outlines threats to agricultural land nationwide and assesses the major steps that states have taken to protect farmland, support working farms and ranches, and ensure food security now and for future generations.
Julia Freedgood, Mitch Hunter and Jennifer Dempsey of American Farmland Trust will share top line findings, demonstrate new spatial mapping tools, and examine policy solutions to help planners and policy makers sustain and protect their valued agricultural resources.
