Successful connections between landowners interested in land leasing and land seekers begins with both parties coming to the table prepared and with a vision. This workshop is geared toward landowners and will provide information and resources on agricultural and conservation considerations that can be incorporated into leasing arrangements. Join us from 1:00 - 4:00 pm at PEC's headquarters office in Warrenton to learn more.
