This workshop will be an introduction of how to approach planning and layout of land for small-scale farming production. Participants who already own or lease land as well as those who plan to in the future are welcome. Our focus will be on growers and beginning farmers, although landowners interested in potentially leasing to farmers are welcome.
Our case study for the process we will be looking at a local farmers land and will “walk through” a site analysis of their property’s conditions using a number of land planning tools. We will take an inventory of many conditions such as soils, water, wind, aspect and more. Next, we will create a multi-layered map of the site which serves as a base for decision making. Using this information, a conceptual design will begin to take shape for the possibilities for production on the site, which addresses some of the needs and challenges laid out in the analysis phase.
