Description

Join Rogue Farm Corps for “Changing Hands: A Workshop on Farm Succession Planning and Access to Land." This workshop is a part of a Spring series that will bring together retiring and aspiring farmers for a full day of training. We will also have some facilitated networking on regional issues throughout the day so we can begin to build a community that will last beyond the workshops.

If you are a retiring farmer, come learn from experts about what it takes to pass on your business to the next generation – keeping it in the family or finding others to carry it on.

If you are an aspiring farmer, come learn about creative ways to start your farm business with topics on finding, leasing, financing and buying agricultural land.

Our day-long workshop starts with breakfast at 7:30am, the program begins at 8:30am and goes through 5pm with lunch and afternoon snacks included.

Register by 04/20 for just $20, including meals. Late registration, as of 04/21 will be $30.
