PCC Farmland Trust Why Protect Farmland

We have a choice to make. We can surrender to the “inevitability” of fallow fields, big box stores, and identical houses where fertile farmland once was. We can watch as some of the best agricultural soil in the world is gradually subsumed by cement, malls, office parks and the gray expanse of “progress”. Or we can capitalize on the preservation work we’ve fought for, and use that momentum to chart a course toward a tangible, meaningful vision of sustainable agriculture in Washington state.
