Preserving land for use and not just postcards

There’s a great post on the Minnesota Land Stewardship Project’s Looncommons blog about the importance of preserving land, not as land to look at but land to be well-used, in this case to grow food near a major metro area. It’s about preserving land as an asset, an asset that can be well used (if well cared for) as opposed to just providing a kind of picturesque relief for people in cities. Author Brian Devore has this right – we are making some progress in our thinking.
