Farmland Access Meeting in Illinois

Below is a meeting invitation to all farmers interested in the issue of farmland access for small scale sustainable farmers in Northern/North Central Illinois.  It seems that there are a growing number of farmers who are looking for a larger parcel of land to farm long-term, but finding affordable farmland in our area is difficult due to high cost and a lack of smaller (10-20 acre) parcels. The purpose of this meeting, organized by Angelic Organics Learning Center, is to: Investigate how we can address this need; Come up with a workable plan; Put our plan into action Who should attend: Interested farmers, aspiring farmers, landowners, and supporting organizations When: Wednesday, April 27   7:00 pm Where: Prairie Crossing Development Center, 32400 N.
