InFARMation Series: Creative Ways to Access Land and Capital
February 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The average farmer in Oregon is around 60 years old. Without a plan to get new farmers onto the land, when the older generation hangs up their tools in the next decade we stand to lose 25-50% of farmland currently in production to conglomeration or development.
Throughout the series you will hear about the inspiring hard work that farmers of color and organizations are doing to circumvent the barriers created by structural racism in the agricultural and financial system. FoFF will discuss the biggest threats to Oregon’s farmland, different types of capital available, the importance of having a farm business plan, the benefits of collective farming, and how we can support our BIPOC farming community. Having these continued conversations and sharing resources is a good first step to protecting and preserving our farmland.
February 23, March 30, April 27, and May 25th from 6:30pm-8pm
