Obtaining access to land for farming is not always an easy venture. Purchasing land is probably out of the question for a new farmer. Erica Bowers Lavdanski found a way to farm by cultivating a relationship with long time farmer Paul Hartz. Erica will discuss the process involved in building the relationship and the careful path to tread in establishing a lease that benefitted both farmers. Leases can involve acess to not only land but also equipment, water, fencing and infrastructure. Erica will describe how she and Paul developed a plan that works and have maintained a working relationship for many years.
