Support ASA

Help save farmland for the future

We need your help to protect the valuable agricultural lands of Washington and Rensselaer counties. These lands are an irreplaceable resource, and safeguarding them is an important part of ensuring the future of farming in the Upper Hudson River Valley. As development pressure builds in the greater Capital district, we must respond by accelerating the pace of our conservation efforts. Our goal is to protect 15,000 additional acres of farmland by 2015, bringing our total to 25,000 conserved acres.

Join us and be a part of leaving a legacy of farmland in our region.

Make a Connection with the Land – The goal of this program is to encourage an appreciation for the working landscape and a desire to protect it. Every year we provide families with the opportunity to visit some of the farms we've helped conserve to learn about what makes them so special. Your sponsorship can allow us to offer a terrific outreach program to our more urban communities in Troy.

In our Make a Connection with the Land series we will offer between 12 and 18 community programs, including "Farm Photography for Kids", "Farms, Food and Photography Camp", Nature Hikes, Bike Tours, Farm Tours, and Educational Workshops. Help us provide some fantastic programs this year.  Click here to see a video from our Maple & Milk tour of the Cannon Cattle Ranch.
