Urban farmers seeking to grow or start their businesses face many of the same legal issues as rural growers, while also encountering challenges unique to their urban location. Like other businesses, urban farmers should take care to form a legal structure that suits their goals, protects them and their assets from liability, and prepares for safe and legal labor management. Central State University Cooperative Extension specialist and experienced lawyer Ambrose Moses III will discuss the nuances and key considerations for building your farm’s legal framework, so you can grow with piece of mind. There will be plenty of time for questions, so come prepared to articulate your biggest challenges.

Cost and Registration: $15. Price includes light refreshments. Pre-registration is required by September 12 and space is limited to 25 people.
