Deep Dive into Farmland Access
February 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm- Free
When: Thursday, February 23 from 1-3 pm
Where: SAHC Community Farm at 180 Mag Sluder Road, Alexander, NC 28701
Join SAHC’s Community Farm Manager Chris Link and SAHC staff for a 2-hour, in-person “deep dive” question and answer session paired with a walking tour of the farm. Learn about different aspects of SAHC’s farmland access initiatives, including start-up and funding, challenges, and partnership opportunities. In 2015, Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy launched a Farm Incubator Program to help farmers gain access to land and grow agricultural businesses. Our program has graduated 10 farmers since its inception. We often receive requests from folks interested in learning more about how to start, run, and troubleshoot their own programs — so this is your opportunity to ask questions and learn more in-person! This free opportunity in a relaxed atmosphere will be tailored for landowners, growers, and private/non-profit/public organizations who are interested in learning how to help farmers access land.
FREE and open to the public, but pre-registration is required. Rain or shine (we have an indoor classroom space for discussion in the event of inclement weather).
