Are you a farmer interested in leasing farmland? Join the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, the National Young Farmers Coalition, and PASA for a tour of the Conservancy’s Uber Road Farm in Mercer County. The farm is currently available for a qualified farmer to lease.

You’ll also learn about the Conservancy’s Farmland Access Program, which helps farmers establish operations to support the local food market.

Bring your favorite dish and enjoy a fun potluck dinner after the tour!
