Expanding Farmland Access
Extension is working with the American Farmland Trust to get a better understanding of farmland access needs of farmers of color. The Farmland Access Coalition that aims to collaboratively address farmland access and inequities for African American, Latino, Asian, & Indigenous farmers, hereon collectively referred to as farmers of color. At this stage, we are collecting information on various land access needs which we hope will result in providing some tangible solutions for individual farmers of color and organizations across Wisconsin.
The Farmland Access Coalition will:
- Use the information to see where work is being done
- Assess farmland needs with farmers of color
- Expand our working group
*** If you are a farmer of color or work for an organization that address farmland access – please contact our Community Development Educator ***
