A Taste of the Land at Pine Knoll Farm

Land Trust For Louisiana continues to delight in our emergence from the three-year fog that dampened our outreach during the height of the pandemic. In October, we were lucky to spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon at Pine Knoll Farm, in Tangipahoa Parish, thanks to the hospitality of Jay and Ellen Addison. Roughly 40 people joined us for a Taste of the Land — a wonderful day where we discussed land conservation, easements, and the reasons why we all care about Louisiana’s natural abundance. We partook in great food and great fellowship, meeting many new friends and spending precious time with old ones. There is nothing quite like the intimacy that gatherings like this offer. I believe that we all left Pine Knoll with a renewed commitment to take care of our communities, and the land that we all love. See more pictures below of our lovely day at the farm, and check out our Facebook album to see more of our activities!

In the new year and beyond the Land Trust is committed to meeting with communities across our diverse state, understanding their conservation priorities, and welcoming their help as we work to conserve Louisiana’s lands and waters. We would love to come visit your neck of the woods!

If you are interested in hosting an event like Taste of the Land — as big or as little as you see fit — please feel free to get in touch with me. Let’s talk about ways we can work together to achieve great things for land conservation!

Yours in Conservation,
Cindy Brown
Executive Director
Land Trust for Louisiana
