The vitality and diversity of the multifamily housing market are its strengths but have also slowed our pursuit of sustainability and resiliency.

Webinars Week of October 18

So, You Want Agriculture in Your Community — Have You Heard of PA Farm Link?

Penn State Extension / American Planning Association Pennsylvania Chapter


Wednesday, October 20, 2021 12:00 – 1:15 PM EDT

1.5 AICP CM and LA CES PDH Credits / $50

Many communities choose to prioritize agriculture in community land use. Pennsylvania Farm Link, a nonprofit group dedicated to connecting farmers and landowners in Pennsylvania, can help. As beginning farmers seek land opportunities — both traditional transition from older farmers as well as “creative farming opportunities” — the process is important to the success of communities. PA Farm Link and the land/farmer online database are ‘tools’ to help potential new farmers in municipalities. The database provides opportunities for landowners and/or people looking for farmland — through buying or renting — to find multiple listings from across the state.
