Conservation Easement Donor Tom Vernon
Boone County vineyard owner Tom Vernon donated an agricultural conservation easement to the Greenbelt Land Trust of Mid Missouri. "In areas like Columbia, which are high in development with great natural beauty close to town, conservation easements are critical to keep the rural quality of our community. They help provide some relief from a sea of roof tops. Hopefully our l8 acres of wooded land and small vineyard will be attractive to others and a source of enjoyment to our children."
