Agriculture Conservation Leasing Workshops

This winter, the Agriculture Law Education Initiative (ALEI) and the Harry R. Hughes Center for Agro-Ecology, Inc. will host workshops to teach agricultural service providers, landowners and farmers how to draft a farm lease to incorporate conservation practices.

The interactive workshops will equip participants with: 

  • Communication tools for discussing conservation values
  • Leasing strategies
  • Examples of lease language for commonly used practices
  • Educational materials for future use

Nutrient Management credits are available! 

The workshop series kicks off with an informational webinar on November 15th.
