Farmland Access and Stewardship Working Group Chair Update

In 2019 the Farmland Access and Stewardship Working Group has had two meetings. At our Winter meeting we focused on solar siting in relationship to agricultural land, and land planning in Vermont, and regionally. This meeting included 5 different presenters on this topic - all with different aspects of the issue to discuss: from State and county process development, to regional comparisons of solar siting regulations, to pilot projects exploring grazing and forage growth in solar fields.
