I’m running for Buncombe County Soil and Water Supervisor to help protect farmland and open space.
One of the Soil and Water Conservation District's main functions is to work on farmland preservation projects and programs. With the skyrocketing cost of land and housing in Buncombe County farmland is at risk. And we only have so much productive farmland to go around.
(Aaron and Lisa hiking a few years back.)
Aaron graduated from N.C. State University with a B.A. in Economics. He worked for two years at Angelic Organics Learning Center supporting their farmer training alliance.
Aaron has spent many mornings helping harvest at Ten Mile Farm, formerly in Candler and now in McDowell County.
