We’re thrilled to announce that, thanks to the overwhelming support of our partners, members, and community, we’ve reached the halfway mark of our fundraising campaign in just over two weeks! These donations send a clear message to our governments that the community wants this study of an alternative vision for the Federal Lands.
Land Over Landings has launched an Agricultural/Rural-Growth Economics Study of the Remaining Pickering Federal Lands, and we need your help. We are a volunteer, not-for-profit group. We operate on a shoestring, fuelled by tenacity, hard work, and vision. We’ve never had a fundraising campaign before. We’re starting one now.
Our December UPDATE newsletter has just been published!
After years of preparation, it ALL STARTS NOW. We’ve hired Econometric Research Ltd. and renowned agri-food economist Dr John Groenewegen, of JRG Consulting Inc. to study the economic possibilities if the Federal Lands are protected for agriculture, agri-business, and tourism – not an airport. Read more about it, and other news, in our full newsletter!
