The presentations in this session from American Farmland Trust's Farmland, Food and Livable Communities Conference discuss access to land, one of the top challenges for beginning as well as established farmers. How can we make farmland more available, affordable, secure, and findable? What tenure innovations should be promoted? Presentations cover new models and methods, and explore the role of landowners, retiring farmers, conservation organizations and communities.
Session Presenters: Kathy Ruhf, Executive Director, Land for Good (moderator); Jim Oldham, Executive Director, Equity Trust, Massachusetts; Jon Ramsay, Land Access Director, Vermont Land Trust; Holly Rippon-Butler, Land Access Campaign Manager, National Young Farmers Coalition
