Michael Judd says that if permies.com brings in $5000 to his kickstarter, then permies.com can decorate an entire page in his new book! I'm not sure what we would put there just yet, but the opportunities for comedy are endless!
Does anyone here have experience with using a conservation easement as part of their financial plan for their property. If so, I'd love to hear what you've learned. From what I can see, it's theoretically possible to sell your land or part of it to a designated land trust while still retaining rights, in perpetuity, to the property. I think my big question is this: Are these land trusts something that you create then "sell" it to yourself or are there other organizations that will pay you to keep portions of your land in a natural state?
I'm pretty sure you can go through a process to be exempt from property taxes. Same as if you raised cattle. There's probably rules like minimum acreage to qualify.
I watch a show called "out on the land" on rfdtv. On that show they mention nrcg which I think is natural resource conservation group. My impression is they provide grants to help with changing the land. Stuff like adding wetlands for migratory ducks. Another one they changed the perimeter fence for a certain type of deer that goes under, not over a fence.
See where your hand is? Not there. It's next to this tiny ad:
