HDFFA Partner, Sarahlee Lawrence, Featured on OPB

Rainshadow Organics’ Sarahlee Lawrence was interviewed on Oregon Public Broadcasting’s program, Think Out Loud, about land use zoning and developmental pressure in Central Oregon. She applied for funding through a new NRCS program that preserves land for agriculture in Oregon, the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program. This program helps landowners protect the long-term viability of the nation’s food supply by preventing land use changes of productive working lands to non-agricultural uses. At Rainshadow, Sarahlee has a large focus on sustainability for their land, for environmental and social reasons. In this feature, she discusses different ways of valuing the land, her experience as a family farmer, and her perspectives on the food system.

 

This is a great feature of a local farm and definitely worth a listen. Follow this link to head to the OPB website and check it out!
