Join the Southwest Land Access Partners for this educational summit on
February 2, 2018
Kalamazoo Valley College,
Culinary Allied Health Building
9:30 AM- 3:30 PM
As we know, access to land for farming and conservation purposes is vitally important as more and more farmland will change hands in the coming years. Bringing together beginning and retiring farmers in a way that allows for education and networking is one way to bridge the gap to farmland preservation.
The goal of this educational summit is to help landowners understand succession planning as it pertains to land protection and transfer; and to assist beginning farmers in understanding how to acquire land. Cost for this workshop is $20 (Lunch on your own—Havirmill Café available)
Our team, Southwest Land Access Partners, is a group of educators, non-profit organizations and government agencies. This group is an extension of the Good Food Kalamazoo working group focused on farmland use and access in the greater Kalamazoo area.
