Are you curious about what it might be like to farm in Washington County – the first place in the United States to see the sunrise each day? Or are you a farmland owner that would welcome the opportunity to connect with farmers that would be excited about an opportunity to make use of your land? Then our Maine FarmLink Speed-Linking event is for you! Shake off the remains of our wicked long winter, and come on down for some good, old-fashioned farmer meetin’ and greetin’!
When: Sunday, April 26th from 3-4:30pm. (Registration will start at 2:30 pm.)
Where: The Community Room at Machias Savings Bank, 4 Center Street, Machias ME
What: A chance for farmland seekers and owners to interact in a fun, facilitated way
Why: Because we want help to connect YOU!
Farmland Owners: This is an opportunity for you to promote your farming opportunity (be it a sale, lease or other non-traditional arrangement) and connect with land seekers that are looking for a piece of ground to grow on.
Farmland Seekers: This is a chance for you to meet face-to-face with land owners that are ready to give you a chance to develop your farm dream on their land.
In our experience, most successful land links result from the chance for landowners and seekers to develop rewarding relationships. Maine FarmLink wants to give you all an opportunity to meet one another and begin a dialogue that could lead to a future link!
There will also be a chance to meet and talk with other organizations and service providers that can help support you throughout the linking process.
Here’s a sneak peek at the day’s activities:
- Speed Linking Activity: think “speed dating” applied to land linking (rather than finding a love connection)
- Mingling and Refreshments: a chance for you to strengthen the connections and relationships that you have made during the afternoon, in a relaxed setting, and enjoy some light refreshments.
Please consider joining us for the film showing, Growing Local, at 1pm, right before the FarmLink Mixer.
It is sure to be a good old time!
Pre-registration: Please RSVP to Sue by Wednesday, April 22nd to register for the mixer portion of the afternoon by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org OR calling 207-338-6575
