So You Want Agriculture in Your Community: Have You Heard of PA Farm Link?
1.25 CM credits (pending approval)
In some communities, agriculture is part of the land use of the community. As the age of our farmers gets older, there could be the opportunity for “creating farming opportunities” for the next generation. Pennsylvania Farm Link, a 501c3 non-profit is dedicated to connecting farmers and landowners in Pennsylvania, and how their organization and land/farmer online database can be a “tool” to help any potential new farmers in your given municipalities.
This webinar will explore the agricultural side of land use decision making in your community by introducing planners to PA Farm Link. In addition, you will get an inside look at the PA Farm Link land linking database. This database provides the opportunity for landowners and/or people looking to farm-land (through buying or renting) to find multiple listings from across the state. The database can be a very useful tool for municipal planners to learn about in case they have people who own land in their areas (that are looking to sell or lease), or for people who are looking for land in their areas, to be better connected.
