You are invited to attend a Listening Session on the Massachusetts Farmland Action Plan. All who are interested in supporting farming and access to farmland in Massachusetts are encouraged to register and attend. This session will be conducted by two Spanish-speaking facilitators.
The purpose of the MA Farmland Action plan is to develop state level goals and recommendations for increasing farmland protection, farmland access, food security, and the long-term economic and environmental viability of farms across all regions of the state. The Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR) is supporting the development of the plan, and has engaged the UMass Donahue Institute to gather the input and recommendations from farmers, advocates, farm workers, investors, landowners, land trusts, agricultural technical assistance providers, scientists, public officials, policy makers, and other who support farming and farmland in Massachusetts.
We hope you will attend the Listening Session to share your ideas and suggestions for the Massachusetts Farmland Action Plan. Input from stakeholders like you are key to the successful development of a plan.
The Listening Sessions will be held on Zoom on:
- Tuesday, May 3, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
