Partnerships with Conservation Organizations

Time:  10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Place:  Duke Farms
1112 Dukes Parkway West, Hillsborough, NJ
Cost:  $20 for lunch
Register:  Contact... 



Develop a Team As we learned in the first session of this series "Towards Food System Resiliency," the American Farmland Trust (AFT) partners with land conservation organizations to connect farmers seeking land to cultivate.  We will continue to explore how to adapt this program for New Jersey.  We will discuss training needs and other approaches to create a team of knowledgeable farmland "advisers."  David Haight from the American Farmland Trust will facilitate this discussion.  
Apply Technology:  The State Agriculture and Development Committee will facilitate a discussion about their NJ LandLink program and obtain feedback from the audience about the program and how to inform people about the resource.  

Thanks to the Foodshed Alliance for organizing this program.


Who should attend:  Those who attended the two prior workshops on June 7 and August 15

 are invited to this program.  However, anyone with interest in the topic is welcome to attend.  Please share with others!  All participants must register.
