OCT 22, 2023: Nelson, BC – LAND LINKING WORKSHOP

Posted by Kat Roger on September 18, 2023

GOT LAND? WANT LAND? Are you a landholder looking for farmers? Are you a farmer looking for land? We want you!

Join us for a workshop on the nuts and bolts of land access. Young Agrarians Land Linking Workshops bring together landholders and farmers seeking land to network, explore possible land matches, and learn how to navigate land sharing and lease agreements.

Our B.C. Land Matching Program Manager Darcy Smith and our Columbia Basin Land Matcher, Nyree Marsh will be there to talk about how land matching supports land seekers and landholders, and share key questions to ask, legal considerations, and building and maintaining stable land agreements that are mutually beneficial.

Date: Sunday, October 22, 2023  |  1-5pm

Location: Traditional Sinixt, Ktunaxa & Syilx TerritoriesNorth Shore Hall, 675 Whitmore Rd, Nelson, BC

REGISTER: Please RSVP on Eventbrite.Register here button takes you to event registration pageWe encourage all landholders to join us, whether you’ve just started thinking about the possibility of making land available to lease, or you’ve already put a ton of thought into your vision for your land. Farmers and farmers-to-be of all types are welcome, whether you grow veggies, raise livestock (or bees!), or have some other farming project in mind.

We can’t wait to land link with folks from across the Columbia Basin – Kootenays. We hope you’ll make the trip to spend the day meeting farmers, landholders, and potentially sparking connections that will lead to matches, leases, and so much more in the future.
