Farm Training Project: Accessing and Leasing Land

July 31 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

FREE

MOFGA’s Farm Training Project (FTP) workshops are designed for apprentices, Journeypeople, farmworkers and other beginning farmers. They follow an informal format including a farm tour and conversation on the topic of the day. All events are free but require registration.

Suncatcher Flower Farm leases 1 acre of land from Crystal Spring Farm in Brunswick. Joined by Maine’s Land for Good field agent, we will discuss the essentials of a good lease, considerations for  growing on leased land and how to find land to farm. We will also discuss the decisions Kristen makes in her business because she leases land.  There will be opportunities for networking and farmers that are interested in leasing land as well as farmers with land to lease are encouraged to attend.

REGISTER HERE.

For questions call 207-568-4142 or email MOFGA’s Beginning Farmer Program Specialist, Bo Dennis, at [email protected].

This, and other noted workshops on soil health, are eligible for travel reimbursement. At the end of the Farm Training Project calendar a mileage reimbursement form will be sent to all participants.
