Accessing land is a common barrier for new and beginning farmers. Penn State Extension is hosting “Land Access Series: Find, Lease and Purchase Land in Pennsylvania,” a webinar series for discussions on finding, leasing and purchasing land to help overcome access barriers.
The series runs from March 29 to 31, April 1 and April 8.
Open discussion will be available for participants each night after formal presentations. The last webinar will feature special panel discussions from statewide and regional agricultural accountants, farmland preservation directors, lenders, realtors, new and beginning farmers, and more.
This series will have incorporated curriculum from American Farmland Trust. It’s being held in part of a USDA-Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program grant titled “Land Access and Saving for Long-Term Assets: Combining Two Approaches to Addressing a Common Barrier for New and Beginning Farmers and Ranchers.”
There is no cost to attend. To learn more or register, visit extension.psu.edu.
Registration closes at 6 p.m. March 29.
