The Problem: Farm owners are selling their land to developers because they cannot generate enough income from current farming. Also, pesticides are used which are destroying the ecosystem and contaminating our ground water supply.
How we aim to resolve this problem in our district:
We aim to provide support to local farmers by linking them to organizations that require certain high-profit crops year round. We will coordinate workshops based on pesticide-free sustainable farming techniques to enable the land to stay fertile.
We also plan to work with farmers on developing farm-to-table tours.
