Learn About Who Can Help: Service Providers

Are you interested in knowing who is working to help provide equitable land access opportunities in your area?

Agrarian Trust is developing a network of service providers and land access advocates who understand the concepts, processes, and steps involved in creating community-based, equitable land tenure, and who are available to assist in the growth of the Agrarian Commons.

This national network consists of trained professionals who are available to assist farm owners looking to transition their land, or farmers seeking access to land, in order to navigate and guide them through a process with care and consideration.

The goal is to provide a network of support available to Agrarian Commons constituents in order to ensure the longevity of this new land model. We invite you to connect with the Commons Alliance network to stay informed about who is working in your area.

We are currently implementing regional service provider training programs with grants from Northeast SARE and North Central SARE. 

We will publish the list of service providers as soon as the programs are completed and the list becomes available.
