  • Farms are an integral part of the community and landscape, where we all benefit; they need all our support and ingenuity to keep them thriving

    Ecologically, razing farm land to build houses destroys the ecosystem that the farm sustains. Besides land value and history, precious wildlife is greatly affected.

  • It’s good for children in a community to have an opportunity to learn teamwork in a non-competitive way by actually working on a farm. Many community farms offer after-school and summertime programs for youth to work and learn about agriculture, ecology and local history at a working farm. Land’s Sake in Weston has run the Green Power Youth Farming program in such a way for almost 40 years. I hope Lexington can do something similar at Busa Farm.
