SPEED LINKING, FARMER STYLE
When: Thursday, November 20th at 4:30p.m.
(Registration will start at 4:00p.m.)
Where: Sea Dog Brewing Co., 1 Bowdoin Mill Island #100, Topsham, ME
What: A chance to interact face-to-face with farmland seekers and owners in a fun, facilitated way
Why: Because we want help to connect YOU!
Farmland Owners: This is an opportunity for you to share your farming opportunity (be it a sale, lease or other non-traditional arrangement) with a Seeker, and talk one-on-one.
Farmland Seekers: This is a chance for you to meet face-to-face with some of the land owners who have arrangements that might interest you.
In our experience, most successful land links are built on relationships between land owners and land seekers. This mixer will serve as an opportunity for you 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 through the linking process.
If you’d like to enjoy one of Sea Dog’s fine brews at your own expense during the event, please come a little early.
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 a small selection of Sea Dog fare. You might also want to linger after the even for dinner. Here is a link to Sea Dog’s menu. If you’d like to make a whole day of it, please consider joining us for the Topsham Negotiation Skills workshop earlier in the day!
It is sure to be a fun afternoon of learning, networking, and LINKING!
