Susan Koehler is the Farmland Preservation Coordinator at the Northwest Arkansas Land Trust.

The Northwest Arkansas Land Trust was recently awarded a major grant from the Walton Family Foundation to help farmers seeking land and resources to grow fruits and vegetables for local wholesale markets to meet growing demand. The five-year Farmland Preservation Grant will also support existing and new family farms, promote sustainable farming practices, and strengthen local food systems.
