This workshop is for private landowners interested in making their land available to farmers for agricultural production, members of community organizations interested in assisting local farmland owners to keep agricultural land in active production, and farmers interested in leasing issues.

A panel will discuss these topics:
Speakers include representatives from: Rutland Area Farm and Food Link (RAFFL), Land For Good, Univ. of Vermont, and Vermont Land Trust.
