Land Access Innovations Training

Do you love protecting land for future generations? This February, you can learn how to utilize new tools and strategies to help new farmers get on the land! This day-long workshop is designed for land trusts, conservation professionals, Extension educators, and other USDA service providers, and will equip participants with practical ways to work with beginning farmers to increase their access to land while meeting common goals. 

The National Young Farmers Coalition's recent survey of young farmers found that the number one biggest barrier new farmers face is access to land. This is a challenge when we consider the age of our farming population and the fact that nearly 100 million acres of farmland are expected to change hands in the next decade. Consider attending this workshop on February 14, 2018 at the Franklin County Soil and Water Conservation District office conveniently located near downtown Columbus. 

This workshop is being offered by the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association in partnership with the National Young Farmers Coalition and Tecumseh Land Trust. For more information and to register, please visit this website. Questions? Please contact Kelly Henderson, Begin Farming Program Coordinator, kelly@oeffa.org, (614) 421-2022 

Let's help more beginning farmers find their love in the land!

Perennial/Native Plant Swap & Sale

Perennial/Native Plant Swap & Sale 10 a.m.-3:00 p.m. at TLT's Office, 4633 US Rt 68 N, Yellow Springs, OH 45387

Celebrate Earth Day! 

It’s never too early to think about spring! What do you need to thin out of your garden? Too many coneflowers or black-eyed Susans? What native perennials would you like to add to attract more of those so important pollinators? Thinking of reducing your mowing time? Perhaps you could use some native ground cover! If this sounds appealing, then mark your calendars for TLT’s Earth Day Plant Swap. You can bring your native seedlings, grasses, forbs, shrubs, and flowers that day, or drop them off earlier that week. If all you want to do is clear out some plants and share them, that’s good too.
