Winter 2022 Farmer Support/Education and Legal Workshops

Hi Folks,

As the winter begins, many farmers and ranchers are reviewing their business structures, considering diversification options, and developing strategic marketing goals and events for the upcoming year. Wintertime offers the perfect opportunity for farmers to jump start another season by resolving their legal vulnerabilities. At Farm Commons we believe: 

Every farmer and rancher can build legal resilience.
Every agriculture support person can help them get there. 

Beginning in January, we're offering two online interactive workshops to support this vision: 

Discovering Resilience: A Legal Workshop for Farmers and Ranchers
Guiding Resilience: A Legal Workshop for Ag Service Providers

Find out more details below and by clicking on the links. 

Register Today, as spaces are limited!

Discovering Resilience empowers farmers and ranchers with the knowledge to identify and resolve their most pressing legal vulnerabilities. Upon completing this 5-week interactive workshop you'll learn the 10 best practices of farm legal risk management, build an individualized action plan so that you can take immediate steps to build your farm's legal resiliency, and connect with other farmers going through similar situations.

Wednesdays (2-4pm CST), beginning on January 5

Guiding Resilience empowers agricultural support providers to guide farmers and ranchers towards resolution of their legal vulnerabilities. Be there for them when your producers ask legal questions without creating more risk (for yourself or anyone else). This 5-week interactive workshop keeps you engaged and gives you the info you need while networking with colleagues in the field.
