Story

Dear fans and supporters of TLT,

Over the last 20 years, we have made significant progress in preserving the rural beauty of Tiverton.

We saved Pardon Gray from becoming a housing development and instead created an amazing 200+ acre open space for everyone to enjoy. We protected 5 properties to expand Pocasset Ridge, a 617-acre preserve adjacent to Weetamoo Woods and Pardon Gray.

Now that summer is over and it’s quieter, I’m reflecting on the beauty of Tiverton, especially our precious farmland. And it becomes clear to me, and all of us at the Tiverton Land Trust, that our work is far from complete.

In the last 15 years over 11 million acres of this nation’s irreplaceable agricultural land has been paved over, fragmented, or otherwise converted to new uses that jeopardize farming, and permanently change the landscape and nature of communities.

With a new sense of urgency, the Tiverton Land Trust is focusing on a rare opportunity to preserve 30 acres of historic farmland on Nonquit Pond. This land has been farmed continuously for over 250 years, and we need your help to ensure this farming legacy is preserved.

Land conservation in Tiverton is a collaborative effort. The Land Trust obtains all its funding through a mix of individual donations and memberships from local citizens, and from soliciting grants from private and public institutions.

On this Nonquit Pond Farmlands project, we have secured approximately $525,000 in grants from public institutions. Now we have entered the grassroots phase of fundraising the remaining $235,000 from our community.

Will you donate today to support this critical preservation work that will protect land in Tiverton for future generations?

The Tiverton Land Trust, founded in 1997, has successfully preserved and protected over 655 acres of land in Tiverton. There is so much more that needs to be done.

Give to the Tiverton Land Trust today to help preserve 30 acres of historic farmland on Nonquit Pond forever.

Help us preserve Tiverton lands for generations to come. For more information and to visit our website, click here.

Sincerely,

David Elliott,
President, Tiverton Land Trust
