These sessions are open to the public and are designed to serve agriculture service providers interested in supporting farmers who wish to farm TOGETHER (i.e. not in the single farmer / lead operator model most paperwork is designed for). We are particularly recruiting folks who are willing to join a cohort of farm service providers serving land seekers and land owners reaching their common goal of land tenure.
This second webinar, on July 27th (5:30-7:30pm, in person option at Hamline University's Center for Justice and Law, West Hall room 240, and online for most folks), will use case studies from Minnesota help you understand how farmers and farm supporters across a range of fields, including attorneys, accountants, extension agents, farmland access navigators, and connectors to government programs authorized in the Farm Bill, can help to address the many challenges to equitable farmland access, especially for historically marginalized farmers collectively working to grow food for their communities.
The last half hour will focus on the cohort (please note in registration if you're interested in joining!) -- but the webinar is open to all.
This webinar is also eligible for Continuing Legal Education credit; please contact CJL@hamline.edu for details.
