FarmLink Aquidneck

Our new FarmLink website features information on ALT’s farm conservation work and provides resources for local farmers. Land-Link matches up those seeking farmland with those who have it to lease. Check out ALT-conserved farmland and available farmland.

We have big dreams for Little Creek Preserve! Your gift will help us construct a sturdy boardwalk to the seasonal pond, enabling hikers and birdwatchers to be surrounded by the beauty of this site. Thank you!
