Given the ongoing conversation and continuing effort in Missoula about the need to protect our disappearing agricultural soil and farmland, I thought you’d be interested in this exciting presentation next week:
“Saving a Place for Agriculture in Our Community”<https://www.facebook.com/events/1120300401343194/>
Bob Wagner, Senior Policy and Program Advisor, American Farmland Trust
Tuesday, March 22, 7:00pm
Missoula City Council Chambers – 140 W. Pine St.
Bob Wagner<https://www.farmland.org/staff/robertwagner> will be visiting Missoula and will share his wealth of experience helping communities conserve agricultural land. Bob draws on 29 years of experience at American Farmland Trust to create and promote state and local farmland protection strategies nationwide and to oversee AFT's land project and easement stewardship activities. This is a free, public event, sponsored by the Community Food and Agriculture Coalition, Trust Montana, Missoula Community Food Co-op and the Western Montana Growers Cooperative.
Special Bonus: Local farmer and poet, Josh Slotnick, will share his reflections on the value of soil.
