Land Sharing Negotiation Dos and Don’ts

Join Darcy Smith, YA’s BC Land Matching Program Manager, and Pascale Schittecatte, YA’s Okanagan Land Matcher, to learn the tools for effective land sharing negotiations.

Learn about communication styles, compromising with integrity and maximizing mutual benefit for both farmers and landholders. This session will feature easy-to-adopt tips for having great collaborative conversations so you can work together to figure out the terms of your land sharing relationship.

We will emphasize communication tools that, when used effectively, can ensure longevity, stability and respect in your land-sharing relationship. Discover how to assess your own and others’ communication styles and build a toolbox of practical strategies for addressing the needs of multiple parties with positive outcomes.

You will leave this webinar with communication skills for the initial lease negotiations, day-to-day land sharing relationship upkeep and for the unforeseen transitions that may come down the line.
