Farmland preservation meeting Oct. 3

The Washington State Conservation Commission and the Office of Farmland Preservation invite you to join us for an important strategic discussion on the future of  farmland preservation in our state.  The meeting will be in Okanogan on October 3 from 9am – 12pm at the City of Okanogan Council Chambers located at 120 3rd Ave N in Okanogan

Last October we held a meeting on Snoqualmie Pass with many farmland preservation stakeholders from across the state.  At this meeting we discussed several issues that are connected to the broader farmland preservation topic.  These issues included: Open Space Taxation, New and Beginning Farmers, and agricultural conservation easement funding.

The upcoming meeting in Okanogan will be to gather your ideas on long-term funding ideas for improving farmland preservation and supporting farmers in our state.  You will also hear about work currently being done on these issues and other farmland preservation updates.  In addition, we have set aside a good portion of the meeting to hear from you and learn more about the work you are doing locally and how we can support your efforts.

If you are able to join us for this morning meeting, please indicate with an RSVP to Josh Giuntoli at jgiuntoli@scc.wa.gov, or just stop on by.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us here at the Office of Farmland Preservation.
