Collaboration Not Competition: Community Land Trusts Can Help!

Room: TBD
Intro Level, Intermediate Level, Advanced Level

The panel will consist of staff and board members of the Southeastern CT Community Land Trust. We are a membership-based nonprofit organization that holds land for the development of permanently affordable housing, food production, green space, and facilities for community organizations. We are a grassroots organization by the people for the people, promoting social justice through the community holding land in trust. Recently, we have worked closely with the Salem Land Trust on farm land and farmer housing preservation. In this Workshop, we will share that story and develop further the idea that Community Land Trusts and Conservation Land Trusts can collaborate rather than compete.
