Living Lands 2009

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Regional Commission, in complement to its highly popular annual Living Towns Planning Workshops, held the 2009 Living Lands Planning Workshop on September 17, 2009 at the Daniel Technology Center at Germanna Community College in Culpeper, Virginia.

Workshop participants heard presentations on the importance of identifying and mapping resources as a first step in the planning process, strategies to be used to develop and implement a comprehensive green infrastructure plan and a summary of available technical resources. The workshop also featured a farmers' market with locally grown vegetables, plants, flowers and meats, as well as other local products.

An agenda and presentations from the days' proceedings can be accessed below and the Regional Commission hopes to see you at our next Planning Workshop in 2010!
