Forging new links between the Mid-Atlantic’s urban and rural constituencies is one of many components of a strategy to sustain a thriving resource-based economy on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Developed by American Farmland Trust (AFT) for the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy (ESLC) with funding from the Maryland Center for Agro-Ecology, Inc., the strategy offers a model for other communities where commodity-based agriculture and other resource-based enterprises must adapt to globalization and development pressure.
