Beal will speak about her time researching, advocating, and empowering farms around New England. She’ll talk about how food production in Maine and New England is changing, and how we can make the most of our resources on land and sea to provide for an aging population and changing climate. She’ll also talk about the work Maine Farmland Trust is doing to preserve, protect, and promote agriculture across the state.
Amanda Beal is President and CEO of Maine Farmland Trust, a member-powered organization that protects farmland, supports farmers, and advances the future of farmland. She is the co-author of “A New England Vision.”
