"American Farmland Trust was at one time the only group that viewed
agriculture and the environment as two sides of the same coin.
AFT's enduring legacy is that traditional farm groups now embrace
conservation, and environmental groups now see farming as part of
the solution. Don Stuart shows how far we've come."--John Piotti,
President, American Farmland Trust
"AFT's focus on farmland, farming practices, and farmers is essential. At stake is no less than our food and water security in the face of dramatic, potentially catastrophic weather patterns. We can and must rise to the occasion--as agriculture and its transformation must be central to America's future. As it has for forty-plus years now, the American Farmland Trust has an outsized role to play in driving this transformation."--William K. Reilly, former US EPA administrator and president of the World Wildlife Fund; longtime AFT board member and past board chair
