This meeting will offer an opportunity to meet new farmers and other community members to talk about the future for small and mid-sized agricultural operations in the community. LSP’s work in the region related to beginning farmer training, helping transition farms to the next generation, promoting local food economies and supporting innovative agricultural systems will be discussed.
“The public is welcome to come together to talk about the future of this community, our businesses, families, farmers and the beauty of this landscape in the next five, 10, 50 years and beyond,” said Moore, an LSP organizer. “Come to learn more about planning for the future, and meet some of the next generation ready to start a life in agriculture.”
