Land Access for the Next Generation Farmers. Land is the basis of freedom, justice, and equality (Malcom X)
Agrarian Trust in 2016 celebrated a very interesting symposium Tracing the Acequia Commons (http://agrariantrust.org/symposium/). Nevertheless Jpic-jp.org did have any connection with FAC and therefore it is not in position of expressing so far any opinion on FAC
Nationally-supported, community-held land and agrarian property that supports diversified sustainable food production, shared ecological stewardship, agrarian community vitality, and the next generation of farmers and ranchers.
We are in the midst of 400 million acres of U.S. land changing hands as a generation of farmers and ranchers retires. Next generation farmers struggle with land access, affordability, and tenure. In this critical moment of transition, innovative models of ownership and stewardship are needed to heal the land and grow food sustainably.
Agrarian Trust is innovating in land ownership, access, tenure, and equity opportunities to transform our relationships to the land and each other. Our work is building the issue and framing solutions, collaborating with stakeholders and collective efforts, and creating the local Agrarian Commons to support the next generation of farmers and ranchers and foster a regeneration of the land and care for the Earth. We organize for racial and gender equity as an integral part of our work toward environmental and climate justice.
Our Land 2016 | Tracing the Acequia Commons
In 2016, we gathered to explore topics of public trust, commons culture, Acequia traditions, water enclosures, and new topographies. Through lectures, documentary films, open archive exhibits, and a walk along an Acequia irrigation ditch–we learned much together. May the ditches flow for another four centuries!
