Information about LandLink:
The Central New Mexico LandLink, a program of the Mid-Region Council of Governments (MRCOG) Agriculture Collaborative, strives to “link” beginning farmers and ranchers with agricultural landowners and farm and ranch operators. By connecting landholders and experienced farmers with the next generation of farmers and ranchers, LandLink helps keep land in agricultural production; provides jobs, mentorship opportunities, and resources to new farmers; helps maintain the state’s strong agricultural heritage; and increases the production of local food.

Information about our speakers:
