LandLink 2.0

farmers sunsetLandLink, our statewide farmland-farmer match up site, was awarded a grant in late 2016 from the Thornburg Foundation. This is great news. It will mean an infusion of new energy into the site, expanded partnerships and new and improved outreach. We have already begun to take action and to make some critical changes to the program.

For starters, new staff member Sarah Ijadi was brought on board to assist with the program. In addition to getting familiar with the program and LandLink site, Sarah also is participating in the in-classroom courses of the “Grow the Growers” farm training program as part of a targeted outreach effort and to gain further insight into the locally-based food production system. She had a dual role as both participant and presenter when on December 19th she presented the LandLink program to the class.

Look for new brochures, outreach information, and events in the New Year.
