Apply by this Friday, July 25th for NYFC and Equity Trust’s Land Access Innovations Workshop for land trusts.

The one-day, in-person training is aimed at staff from a select group of land trusts that have a high degree of commitment and sufficient capacity to move forward in the implementation of farm protection projects that incorporate affordability innovations. Topics will include: easement tools and ground leases, fundraising, monitoring and enforcement, and legal considerations. Following the training, land trusts will be part of an ongoing working group and receive assistance from mentor organizations as they implement farmland affordability mechanisms into their easement projects.

The workshop will take place on Sunday, September 21st in Providence, Rhode Island, immediately following the Land Trust Alliance Rally.
