Planning for Profitable Agriculture and Sustainable Food Systems

Thurs., May 25, 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm   Earn 1.5 AICP CM credits

How can local and state governments take stock of their rural resource-based industries, assess where these industries are headed, and determine how to support local farm-to-table commerce? Two recent studies in Maryland examine these questions and explain why planners throughout the country should care about these issues.

In this webinar, Joe Tassone (of the Maryland Department of Planning) and Greg Bowen (of Land Stewardship Solutions) will discuss “The Future of Sustainable Farming and Forestry in Maryland” (also the name of one of their recent published reports), and summarize their findings and recommendations toward a healthier, more equitable and resilient food system, with lessons from the Chesapeake Bay region that apply elsewhere.
