About the event:
In the next two decades 400 million acres of U.S. farmland will change hands. Will that land be consolidated into larger holdings and treated as a commodity or investment asset? Or will it prove the foundation for a new business, a next-generation farmer, a passionate entrepreneur? Join us for a daylong teach-in to tackle the historical context, long-range implications and economic impact, and stewardship potential of the transition ahead.
Portland State University hosts Dr. Nabhan as a featured speaker for the Illahee Lecture Series on May 5 @ 7:30pm. Nabhan will be joined by colleagues in conservation and food systems for a lively discussion about the future of conservation in food-producing landscapes in the west.
These lectures are held in the Pacific Northwest College of Art's Swigert Commons.
