Farms Under Threat 2040: Choosing an Abundant Future for Virginia and West Virginia
July 20, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Our partners at the American Farmland Trust are hosting a webinar outlining at risk farmland in Virginia and West Virginia.
America’s farm and ranch lands are rapidly disappearing, threatening our rural communities and agricultural economy, jeopardizing future food security, and increasing vulnerability to extreme weather events. Virginia and West Virginia face a choice: let poorly planned development of this vulnerable resource continue or work to safeguard more farmland through better land-use planning and additional farmland protection tools. Farms Under Threat 2040: Choosing an Abundant Future, a new report from American Farmland Trust, maps three alternative futures out to the year 2040 in Virginia and West Virginia. Join AFT’s National Agricultural Land Network Director and guests to explore highlights of our findings and what they mean for the future of agriculture in Virginia and West Virginia.
