Working Lands Alliance

The Working Lands Alliance is the statewide voice for farmland preservation efforts in Connecticut. Our alliance includes farmers, conservation and anti-hunger organizations, land trusts, local food advocates, and many others working together to protect Connecticut’s most precious resource – its farmland.
