About Us

www.mocoalliance.org**

The mission of the Montgomery Countryside Alliance is to promote sound economic, land-use and transportation policies and programs that preserve the natural environment, open spaces, and rural lands in Montgomery County’s Agricultural Reserve for the benefit of all Washington Metropolitan area residents.As Montgomery County continually considers where and how to grow, protection of the Agricultural Reserve becomes more critical. We advocate for land use policies that protect rural and open spaces and working farms, while accommodating new growth in vibrant neighborhoods near transit centers and optimal use of current infrastructure. We envision a Montgomery that reliably and permanently supports its rural economy, treasures its forests, fields and streams, and plans carefully for growth.

We:

Advocate for land use and transportation policies that enhance agriculture and land preservation.

Educate about the environmental, economic and recreational benefits of local farmland.

Support local farms to strengthen our rural economy and local food system.

Celebrate the beauty and abundance of the Ag Reserve.

Conserve the economic value and rural landscape of the Ag Reserve for current and future generations of the region.
