Review for American Farmland Trust, Washington, DC, USA
AFT plays a critical role in protecting the nation's farmland for the multiple benefits that it can provide -- food, open space, and a variety of environmental services. I first learned of AFT through its critical and excellent work in trying to reform and improve the US farm bill so that it maximizes the public benefits that America receives through its support of agriculture. Today, AFT continues to play a role not only in shaping national policy but also in helping to build markets for regional agriculture and in establishing ways to encourage farms to provide cleaner water, sequester carbon, and generally benefit the environment. AFT does all of this, moreover, with a relatively small staff that is highly efficient and effective.
