Getting Farmers on Your Land - Wed March 21
3/20/12 - 4:46 pm
Catskills FarmLink is connecting farmers looking for land with property owners willing to partner. Come find out what it takes to put your land to work. Two free workshops, Introduction to Evaluating Land for Agricultural Use & the Basics of Land Leasing, will address your questions, provide expert legal answers, and share farmer-landowner stories from those who are making it work.
Wednesday, March 21 from 6-8 p.m.
eCenter, 5-1/2 Main Street, Delhi
Thursday, March 22 from 6-8 p.m.
Duggan Community Center, 3460 State Route 55, White Lake
The workshops address two commonly asked questions: 1.) how do I evaluate my land for agricultural use, and 2.) how to I develop a land lease? Dale Dewing, field crop educator and Watershed extension team leader with Cornell Cooperative Extension, will explain how to evaluate land for agricultural use. A panel discussion of landowners and farmers in lease agreements and food and farm law expert, Jason Foscolo will provide guidance and examples of personal experience with land leases. From 3-5 p.m., Jason is offering free 15-minute consultations to answer questions related to food and farm businesses. To RSVP for the workshop or free legal consultation, contact Catskills FarmLink Coordinator Sonia Janiszewski at (914) 720-1020.
