You are invited to a Royal River Conservation Trust (RRCT) event on Wednesday, April 25th, 7 to 9pm at Westcustogo Hall, Route 115, North Yarmouth.
John Piotti, Executive Director of the Maine Farmland Trust will moderate a panel of farmers including Sarah Wiederkehr of Winter Hill Farm CSA in Freeport, Steve Sinisi of Old Crow Ranch & New Leaf Farm in Durham, and Justin Deri of Deri Farm CSA located on the Skyline Farm in North Yarmouth. Join us RRCT as it initiates a dialogue on what should be the role of the regional land trust working with a network of players toward a collective goal of preserving farmland for Maine’s future.
Freeport Conservation Trust (FCT) is working with the Land for Maine’s Future program and many others to secure an agricultural conservation easement on the Winter Hill Farm (above), in the upper reaches of the Royal River watershed. FCT will be looking to a variety of sources for matching funds. The Skyline-Deri farms and the Old Crow Ranch are already protected by agricultural conservation easements held by the Royal River Conservation Trust.
