Save-the-Date: Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Planning for the 17th Annual Farmland Conservation Celebration & Auction is underway! Our board, committee, and staff are dedicated to making this year’s event our best yet. There will be plenty of good things to eat, libations, live music, and comfortable seating to visit with friends. Stay tuned for updates on this year’s NEW live and silent auction items…

We will also have mobile bidding, through HandBid, so you won’t have to worry about missing out on exciting auction items, including: farm fresh food, local treasures, and experiences that cannot be purchased anywhere else. Proceeds from the event, which continues to be Bluegrass Conservancy’s primary fundraiser, are critical in our ability to assist local families across the Bluegrass region conserve their land.
