In being pro-farmland, American Farmland Trust is not anti-houses. But we are keenly aware of how much our citizens rely on the state's largest industry. We believe that farming has a bright future as a keystone for a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable Maryland.Read More
Tell Legislature No More Cuts to Program Open Space
ALL Marylanders need open land: land to grow our food, for local parks and recreation and for wild and scenic places to restore the soul.
Yet Maryland's Governor and State Legislature are once again diverting dedicated land protection funding to other programs. The Governor's budget eliminates $115 million dollars for parks, recreation and farmland protection. The legislature is piling on additional cuts. In previous years, legislators promised to repay such diversions. But, this year, the administration and legislators are stripping away those promised repayments as well.
We need you to stand up and say no more cuts. Open spaces matter for our state and our residents.
