A driving force behind the land conservation movement in the Panhandle and the State of West Virginia, Lavonne Paden helped with the drafting of and lobbying for adoption of the West Virginia Voluntary Farmland Protection Act in 2000. She later served as President of the Land Trust, and then as Executive Director of the Berkeley County Farmland Protection Board before moving on to become Executive Director of the West Virginia Agricultural Land Protection Authority. She lives in Berkeley County, and is a Certified Public Accountant who will, thankfully, continue to handle the Land Trust’s accounts.
