18th Annual Farmland Conservation Celebration and Auction

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

Doors open at 5:30pm

Fasig-Tipton, Lexington, Kentucky


Kentucky has so much to offer, especially among our marquee Bluegrass region industries like agriculture, bourbon, and horses. But without the natural, world-renowned landscape of the Bluegrass, we would lose our factory floor and our identity – subsequently, these signature industries we pride ourselves on would suffer.

To date, Bluegrass Conservancy has protected 27,033 acres of local farmland. Your sponsorship will allow us to conserve and steward more land, while providing free educational programs and outreach to the community about land conservation and the value there is for all in protecting our irreplaceable natural and cultural resources for generations to come.

For inquiries on this event contact Lauren Hardesty, (859)255-4552 or lhardesty@bluegrassconservancy.org

Supporting Bluegrass Land Conservancy

“We need places like this in the future. Each community will need a bit of quiet open space to treasure and a place to grow our food. Our kids will always have a place that they can look to, and know that their legacy is part of the community.”
