“The Last Green Valley” really says it all. Ours is a region of rural traditions – our culture, our economy, our built environment, our landscape. The Last Green Valley remains 78% forest and farm land, the last large tract of predominantly undeveloped land in the coastal sprawl of the eastern seaboard. Agriculture and its related businesses have tremendous potential in our region because of all the land and water resources that remain.
