Do you own and rent out farmland? Would you like to learn more about how to take care of that farmland for the future?
The Land Stewardship Project is excited to offer a workshop designed specifically for non-operating farmland owners! Your land is an important asset, and we want to help you think about your role in its care and preservation. This workshop will cover the following topics:
• Soil health basics and what that means in context of your farmland asset, water quality and climate change.
• How do we enhance the productive value of farmland? What are local farmers doing to improve soil health? What works?
• Balancing short-term returns with longer term investment in farmland as a productive asset.
• Creating opportunities for young farmers on the land, conservation leases, and how to approach hard conversations.
The day will include a presentation from Kristin Brennan, Assistant State Soil Scientist with the USDA, a question-and-answer panel with regional farmers and landowners who have made long-term investments in soil health, tools to help you learn more about programs and opportunities and practice tackling difficult conversations. You can also visit LSP’s website for more information on conservation leases.
The cost for the day is $15, which will include lunch. To RSVP, please fill out the form below or contact the Land Stewardship Project's Robin Moore at 320-269-2105 or via e-mail.
