Many family farms are fighting to survive. Keeping them vibrant and viable is the focus of an upcoming workshop.

Nationally known land-use planner, author and conservation lecturer Randall Arendt will be the keynote speaker. He will discuss land conservation strategies. U.S. Rep. Baron Hill will give a presentation on the Farmland Protection Program.
Other topics to be discussed include tax and financial incentives for protecting family farmland and historic rehabilitation tax credits.
Registration is $20 for members of Historic Landmarks Foundation or Seymour Heritage Foundation and $30 for non-members. Registration, due by Friday (2/14), includes a one-year membership to the three sponsoring organizations.
