Farm and ranch lands are being developed not just around metro areas, but across rural communities and counties, threatening food security, undermining rural economies, and increasing vulnerability to extreme weather events.
Join the Smart Growth Network as Cris Coffin and Julia Freedgood of the American Farmland Trust explore highlights of the new report, Farms Under Threat 2040: Choosing an Abundant Future, which maps three alternative futures out to the year 2040.
Date: Thursday September 29, 2022
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Pacific Time
They will discuss the report’s findings, the data and methodology behind the scenarios, and what state and local governments can do to guide growth, protect farmland and foster sustainable communities.
If unable to attend, the recording will be posted at http://smartgrowth.org/farms-under-threat-2040-choosing-an-abundant-future/. after the live program.
