Facebook Live – Farmland Seeking Farmer – Puget Sound Agrarian Commons

September 29 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Puget Sound Agrarian Commons Board member, artist, and Agrarian Trust staff member Rhys-Thorvald Hansen will be discussing the land opportunity available now in Washington state.

Bring your questions and comments and join the conversation!

We plan to discuss:

– Our goal to have 50% BIPOC leaseholders to interrupt the racial power dynamics that can arise in white-majority boards

– The land

– Unique challenges and opportunities regarding food sovereignty in island/remote communities (waterway-based food distribution was what was practiced pre-colonization, early colonization, mostly ended during WW2 with the introduction of the highway system)

– Food production and farmland conservation in a state where big ag is greatly focused on export crops

– The Request for Proposals https://agrariantrust.org/…/request-for-proposals-farm…/

The Facebook live session will be streaming directly to our Facebook page at the scheduled time!
