Saving farmland requires fierce cooperation Our strength comes from our alliance. Who we are and how we work is synonymous. That’s because Working Lands Alliance is the big tent that convenes people who care passionately about Connecticut’s farmland and farmers. We are legislators, farmers, conservationists, anti-hunger groups, planners, land trusts, and local food enthusiasts. We come together to do just one thing: protect Connecticut’s vital working lands. The strength of our coalition stems from this alliance of individuals and organizations throughout Connecticut. Each year, our coalition works to engage the Governor, legislators and policymakers about the importance of farmland, and the need for proactive policies that support a thriving farm economy in Connecticut. Because so many people have a voice we are able to set an ambitious agenda. WLA’s policy, advocacy, and education work is driven by a dynamic and diverse Steering Committee that includes members of many key organizations that focus on agricultural and conservation issues in CT.
