Defending Farmlands

Working with Henricopolis Soil and Water Conservation District as co-holders of the easement, Capital Region Land Conservancy protected 124 acres with a conservation easement donated by Godsey Properties Inc at the end of 2020. This easement is one in a long series of easements focused on protecting agricultural resources and livelihoods in the Richmond region. The working farmland in Henrico County is now protected from conversion to low-density residential development. 

Located on Kingsland, Hoke Brady, and Varina Roads in Henrico County, the CRLC easement supports the goals of the Henrico County Comprehensive Plan and contains provisions to preserve the property’s multi-faceted conservation values, which include approximately 90 acres of priority agricultural lands as well as 30 acres of freshwater wetlands, and historically important battlefields adjacent to the Richmond National Battlefield Park.
