Maine Farmland Trust and Land For Good will host the sixth annual Farmland Access and Transfer Conference online Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, November 16–18. The registration fee is by sliding scale. The conference is the largest in New England that focuses solely on farmland access, tenure and transfer.

To acknowledge the history of injustice and violence that has shaped access to land and the food system, and its ongoing legacy, this year’s conference will feature a wider range of diverse voices and perspectives.

The conference will include prerecorded webinars and live interactive sessions about affording farmland, how to craft an agricultural lease, conducting a land search, improving communications among farmers and landowners, succession planning, and tools and resources for supporting Black and Indigenous farmers and farmers of color.

A plenary session about land justice will be led by Alivia Moore of Eastern Woodlands Rematriation Collective, a group of Indigenous people working on regenerative food systems. Participants will join the conversation about how farmers can reorient the framework of land tenure to include reparations and land justice.
