Webinar: 1000 Threats to Oregon's Farmland

Oregon is an undeniable national leader in farmland preservation. Yet, farmers and land use advocates throughout the state can easily recount examples of irreplaceable farmland being lost or compromised.

New research — 1000 Friends of Oregon’s “Death By 1000 Cuts: A 10-Point Plan to Protect Farmland” and American Farmland Trust’s “Farms Under Threat: State of the States” — illuminates ways nonfarm uses on farmland, including low-density residential development, erode the viability of Oregon’s agricultural industry and compromise the state’s valuable farmland.

Our joint webinar with American Farmland Trust covers the national context of farmland loss and how Oregon compares to other states, dives into specific ways Oregon’s agricultural land is threatened and explores possible policy solutions.
