Produced by the American Farmland Trust and the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities, Planning for Agriculture is a “primer and introductory toolkit for planners and municipal officials” that will help inform efforts to preserve and protect local agriculture in Connecticut. The guide defines the fiscal, economic, environmental and recreational benefits of agriculture; prompts towns to reflect on how well they are planning a future for agriculture in their communities (it includes a checklist for gauging how supportive of agriculture a town is); provides tools for getting started; and highlights a handful of case studies and key resources.
