About the event:
The Farmland Access Hub, Renewing the Countryside (RTC) and our partners are hosting a series of regional meet & greet events to provide learning opportunities about financial and technical support for beginning and transitioning farmers. These events are designed to introduce service providers, programs and resources that can aid beginning and retiring farmers (or exiting landowners), as well as allow for networking time between land-seeking farmers and landowners.
Attendees will gather at Oliver Kelley Farm for the learning session from 1–5 pm. Refreshements will be provided. At the conclusion of the event, participants may stick around for an optional farm tour or continued conversations.
