Innovative Land Financing Mechanisms – Workshop 11/13

Innovative Land Financing Mechanisms: new and novel approaches that you might consider

November 13, 2014 from 6:30 – 8:00pm at the RAFFL Office (67 Merchants Row 3rd floor, Rutland)

Presenter: Mike Ghia from Land for Good

This workshop is for farm seekers who want to explore less traditional ways to finance land acquisition. We’ll share findings about emerging farmland investor models, and also discussing crowd-funding examples, land contracts and the new Land Contract Guarantee Program, land cooperatives, and community land trust among other methods. We will look at the positives, negatives, and limitations of these models while also seeking input from the farmers present about their experiences, questions, and concerns about these approaches
