New Discovering Resilience workshop for farmers in April!

Hi Folks,

Are you dreaming about hosting a farm event again, now that Spring is here? As the pandemic fades, many farmers are looking forward to gathering on their farm again with customers and neighbors for food, fun, and swapping stories. I know I am!

Before sending out the invitations, it's important to think about the legal implications. 

  • What if someone is injured? 

  • How does this affect taxes and reporting? 

  • What are my responsibilities to guests with disabilities? 

  • Should I be adding this to my insurance?

Farm Commons has answers. Make sure your farm is ready for the jump start of another season by signing up for Discovering Resilience, our online workshop for farmers nationwide on Tuesday evenings in April. There's still plenty of time to fit it in around seeding and fence repair- you'll be thankful for the added peace of mind this summer when you have the legal knowledge and skills you need to resolve key legal vulnerabilities on your farm. 

Not sure if Discovering Resilience is right for you? Get a taste of what you have to gain by checking out our free tip sheet on sorting out the basics of agritourism legal risks! Also, check out our tip sheet on farm insurance, as it's the primary way to address the legal risk of liability for on-farm events.

Full details for Discovering Resilience are here- it's just $49 for the whole course. These workshops are supported by grant funding, which is what makes them so affordable. Just remember to sign up before April 1st!

Thanks and best of luck for an amazing growing season!
