Navigating land access in the U.S. system of white property ownership that is legally focused on wealth generation and preservation is a hard row to hoe, but there are non-traditional strategies farmers and farm advocates pursue every day. Of course, with those strategies come legal considerations and in this episode we explore the legal mechanics at the intersection of donating land, crowdfunding money, and cooperatively purchasing land. Tune in to learn how the law weighs into these strategies and understand how to manage legal risk, while creating space to question and challenge the current paradigm of land ownership in this country.
