Farmland Preservation: Land for Future Generations speaks to the importance of farmland as an essential resource, meeting one of the most basic of human needs: food. As land is lost to urban sprawl and other non-farm activity, our ability to produce food is diminished and options for future food production are limited. Farmland preservation speaks to the need to preserve the agricultural land base for future generations. This need for protection is driven by uncertainty caused by climate change, population growth, food security, energy availability and a host of other local and global factors. This uncertainty means that there is an ever-growing responsibility to ensure that the actions of today do not compromise the needs of future generations.
