Agriculture has been and continues to be an integral part of Pennsylvania’s landscape, economy and culture. However, changing communities and land use patterns provide operational challenges for farmers as well as community planning and regulatory challenges for local elected and appointed officials. This workshop will educate participants on the availability and interrelationship of land use related programs and protections for farmers as well as planning and policy tools that are available to local municipalities. Subject material will include: • Demographic and land use trends and the impact on agriculture • Agricultural preservation and protection programs • Community and land use planning/regulatory tools and their relationship to agriculture • Agricultural issues in the local community In order to provide an opportunity for dialog between the agricultural community and local officials, a facilitated discussion will be held after the speaker presentations.Pre-registration is required.
