Amanda Beal, Visions for the Future of Maine and New England
Amanda Beal is President and CEO of Maine Farmland Trust, a member-powered organization that protects farmland, supports farmers, and advances the future of farmland. She co-authored “A New England Vision,” which researched Maine and New England food production on land and sea in order to assess productivity and future expansion. The daughter of a Maine dairy farmer, Amanda will discuss her recent research and vision of New England farmland and food production.
