Dutchess Land Conservancy, Columbia Land Conservancy, & Rock Steady Farm

Wednesday, September 28, 5:00 PM, Online Workshop

In this DLC and CLC cooperative 2022 Down to Earth Workshop, hear from the farmers of Rock Steady Farm about food access, farmer training, and leasing land from a fairness and equity perspective.

Join this listening session for landowners in partnership with Rock Steady Farm, a queer-owned and operated cooperative vegetable farm rooted in social justice, food access and farmer training. Participants will complete a pre-workshop survey about their interest in leasing land, hear from DLC & CLC staff and Rock Steady Farmers about considerations for leasing land, particularly to queer and/or BIPOC farmers, and learn about resources available to them through DLC, CLC, and other partner organizations regarding best practices for leasing land to a farmer to ensure fairness and equity.
