Lunch Zoom: Managing Your Land Legacy
Getting Started with Ag Easements
Time & Location
Aug 25, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM CDT
About the Event
“I wish I had a way to ensure that the conservation measures I’ve put in place will not be bulldozed by a developer or reversed by a future landowner -- but I guess can’t control the future.” Have you had this thought?
The truth is that you can take steps to dictate what will happen on your land even after you no longer own it. In this session we’ll cover the basics of an agricultural conservation easement – including who are the parties involved, how conservation easements are funded, and the tangible ways you can use this tool to protect your land from non-farm development and ensure appropriate stewardship for generations to come. Resources and next steps will be available for you.
Session will be recorded and link sent to all registrants.
Speaker: Kara O’Connor, Midwest Philanthropy Officer, American Farmland Trust
Host: Noemy Serrano, MFAI
Woman Landowner Share: Kirsten Jurcek, Brattset Family Farm
