Keeping the Farm Workshop

keeping the farm

The Keeping the Farm Workshop has been a staple of the Wake Soil and Water Conservation District calendar for years. The annual event is a great opportunity for Wake County farm and forest landowners to learn more about topics related to their concerns and interests for protecting and preserving their family farms. The goal of the workshop is to educate farm and forest landowners on stewardship and preservation, covering topics such as taxes, estate planning, conservation practices and more. Ensure your farm and forest land stays in the family for generations to come!

This year's workshop will be held in person on March 22 from 8:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Wake County Commons Building, 4011 Carya Drive, Raleigh. At the 18th annual Keeping the Farm Workshop, you'll learn from experts about:

  • Property Tax Updates

  • PLANWake Implementation
  • Local farmer Insights
  • Safety and Security-Farm and rural issues
