TLGV unveils master protection blueprint

January 25, 2012
The Last Green Valley, Inc., has launched its latest and most ambitious initiative to date, according to its creators — Green & Growing: A Call to Action, a comprehensive regional plan to sustain and expand food, fiber and forest production in the National Heritage Corridor.

More than two years in the making, Green & Growing brings all aspects of local agriculture into one document and provides a regional blueprint for enhancing and protecting agriculture in the Last Green Valley.

"The Last Green Valley worked to develop a strategy to reverse the loss of agriculture and rural traditions while enhancing the economic impact of land," said Charlene Cutler, Last Green Valley Inc. executive director and CEO. "There is a real consequence to not doing something: the window of opportunity will close and we will lose our precious land. There will no longer be The Last Green Valley."
