LACONIA, N.H. — UNH Cooperative Extension will offer two webinars in February, focused on land planning topics for beginning farmers. The first webinar in the series, “Evaluating What You Have” will give an overview of evaluating a site for various agriculture uses, including converting forested land to agriculture, and tools for evaluating the soil. Presenters include Extension Field Specialists in Food & Agriculture and Natural Resources. This webinar will be held on Wednesday, February 2 from 6 to 7:30 pm. For more information and to register, please visit https://extension.unh.edu/event/2022/02/land-planning-beginner-farmers-evaluating-what-you-have-webinar.
The second webinar in the series will be held on Thursday, February 17 from 6 pm to 7:30 pm and will include a panel discussion with three experts on “Planning for the Unexpected & Being a Good Neighbor”. Speakers will discuss general considerations a landowner or land tenant should consider before pursuing an agriculture business to minimize risk on the property and avoid any potential conflict. Discussion points will focus on working with (not against!) your town or city, zoning ordinances, making sure you and others are protected from liability, and understanding restrictions to your land under an easement or lease arrangement.
