Laura Brenner

Communications Coordinator, Lancaster Farmland Trust

When Laura Brenner was first approached about the Lancaster Watershed Leadership Academy from her supervisor, she wasn’t sure it was the best fit for her. As the Lancaster Farmland Trust’s (LFT) communications coordinator, Brenner shares success stories focusing on farmland preservation and protection, not watersheds or water quality improvement. 

It wasn’t until she looked more closely at the course material and spoke with colleagues that it clicked – clean, healthy water is crucial to all aspects of our lives, from the water rushing through her home’s pipes to the water trickling down a shallow stream on a farmer’s land.

Once she saw that connection, she couldn’t unsee it.
