EcoFarm Conference Discussion Group: Communication and Legal Strategies for Farm & Ranch Stakeholders

Changes to the management or operations of a farm or ranch can be overwhelming. Even more so when there are family members or partners involved, where each relationship and role must be considered, or where land may transfer ownership. These moments can provide for financial success for all parties, while also creating an opportunity for an authentic and meaningful experience. Join Olivia Boyce-Abel and Maija West for a discussion about the communication and legal strategies that make these changes powerful opportunities for your business or farm. Attendees will leave the workshop with relevant tools and techniques.

Building upon a farmer-to-farmer education model, EcoFarm Conference represents the convergence of all sectors invested in building a healthy food system and world.
