The Eastern Shore Land Conservancy’s 13th Annual Planning Conference was a success! Many thanks to our sponsors, speakers, volunteers and guests. The conference, hosted Friday, June 8, 2012, at the Tidewater Inn in Easton, Maryland, drew together community leaders, elected officials, planners, designers, entrepreneurs and farmers from around the region to discuss and envision the economic landscape of the Eastern Shore, Delmarva and rural areas throughout the region.
Conference attendees engaged in workshops with their peers and colleagues to learn more about diversification and shifts in the agricultural economy; methods for anchoring towns in working landscapes; and the legislative and regional policy tools needed to enable the economic future that is possible for the region.
