Happy Fall!!! As you go to your local farm to pick your own pumpkins or apples, stop to consider what it would be like without any farmland left! WLA exists to prevent that from happening in CT. If you would like to join us in our efforts, please use the Donate button on either our FB page or at the top of our homepage at workinglandsalliance.org. Thank you for caring about one of our most important resources - our farmland!
