Women landowners in Johnson and surrounding counties are invited to attend a free meeting on Tuesday, September 13, 2016, about transitioning your land to the next generation of farmers. The overall goal of this meeting is to help you learn about legacy planning options and preserving your conservation values on the farm. Creating thoughtful plans when passing land onto future generations can help ensure that your values are included in the transition.
We will meet at the Education Center at F.W. Kent Park, 2048 U.S. 6, Oxford, IA. Our day will begin with coffee, registration and resource browsing at 8:30 a.m., and the meeting will begin promptly at 9. Free lunch is provided and we’ll adjourn after dessert and evaluations by 3 p.m. This meeting, sponsored by Women, Food and Agriculture Network, the Johnson Co. Women, Land & Legacy team, and your local Natural Resources Conservation Service offices, follows the very successful learning circle format designed by WFAN called Women Caring for the LandSM.
During this event, we will offer women strategies that can help clarify goals and shape conversations about legacy planning. John Baker, an attorney with Iowa Concern Hotline, will provide suggestions to understand the legal aspects of land transition and highlight important considerations for landowners. Topics will include succession planning, conservation easements, crop insurance, estate planning, wills, trusts, long-term care, and the importance of record-keeping.
In order for us to have the right amount of food, please RSVP by 4 p.m. Friday, September 9th. . You may register on line at www.jcswcd.org or call 319-337-2322x.3. If you have a female friend or family member you think would benefit from this gathering, please have her call and register too!
