Students created a model that identified land suitable for farming and a scorecard method to prioritize existing farm parcels based not only on quality of soils, history of production, and size of parcel, but also its proximity to other open space, impacts on endangered species, and integrating recreational and economic opportunities.  The resulting report provides a strategy for local food security planning. The plan was integrated into the town of Bloomfield 2011 Plan for Conservation and Development.
