This session of the Young Farmers Conference was streamed live on Thursday, December 5th, 2019 at Stone Barns Center.
AGRICULTURE AS CONSERVATION STEWARDSHIP
The growing number of land trust and protected State and NGO lands offer unique opportunities for collaboration that supports regenerative farming while also furthering ongoing conservation goals. This workshop will cover principles of generative agricultural conservation and discuss the framework to write a Conservation Action Plan (CAP) with a partner organization, using examples developed and implemented by Stone Barns Center and the Rockefeller State Park Preserve, a New York State park. We will also discuss the mutual benefits and potential that exists for farmers to develop a conservation stewardship partnership for improved land management.
