Registration Opened! Renting it Out Right: Why Non-Operating Farmland Owners Are So Important

LANDOWNERS: Would you like to see more conservation soil-building practices on your rented acres but aren’t sure where to start?
FARMERS: Do you want to build soil on land you rent with the support and understanding of your landowner?
Soilbuilding is asset building, for landowners and farmers. They can work together to improve soil health and meet their long term goals—join Land Stewardship Project and Living Earth Center to learn more about how and where to start!
Investment in soil building can drastically improve the land and crops’ resistance to extreme weather events and increasingly wet conditions. What’s more, building your soil also builds wildlife and pollinator habitat, sequesters carbon, and reduces erosion that causes water quality concerns.

REGISTRATION
Pre-registration is requested to plan for food. Lunch is included, and we ask for a suggested donation of $20 .
Come on your own or invite your landowner or farmer/renter to join you.
