Using Traditional or Non-Traditional Ways of Gaining Farmland
February 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
Join NOFA/Mass for a special “Inspiring Ideas from the Field” 2021 series kick-off webinar that focuses on pathways for overcoming land access barriers faced by farmers of color, beginning farmers, and veteran farmers.
Land Access is a critical component for farmers both in urban and rural areas. Many beginning farmers, BIPOC farmers, and veteran farmers face complex market or institutional barriers in land access. This webinar will feature panelists who will explain the historic context of ongoing barriers to land access and provide insight into non-traditional ways of acquiring land by leveraging government resources as possible solutions for overcoming land purchasing obstacles.
