Farmland Forever

Nearly 1,000 acres of prime Pajaro Valley farmland are to be forever used for agriculture, thanks to conservation easement agreements with the Land Trust of Santa Cruz County. The protection was formally announced at a July 10 dedication ceremony, and will ensure the Borina Lands, as well as a few other private South Santa Cruz County agricultural properties, will continue to be rich farmland for the county. A Land Trust press release also said, “Their protected status serves as a buffer against urban development east of Watsonville.”
