One of the quickest and easiest ways to access the land can be through an agreement with a private owner if you know or are able to find the owner of the free land. As with any land use agreement, the definition of conditions of use is very important. These conditions must define the rights and responsibilities of both parties: the landowner and the gardener or farmer. Produce Garden: Clarify land ownership Responsibility: Ideally, a two-way liability exemption. Both the landowner and the gardeners/managers grant compensation or an exemption from legal liability to the other, through specific scenarios and responsibilities for their respective use of the land. Some landowners require groups of gardeners to purchase liability insurance. The American Community Garden Association offers an option that offers affordable liability insurance to its members. For more information on liability insurance, visit our resource page on the Insurance page. Cultivation practices: use of tools/machines by farmers and responsibility of landowners to limit activities such as the use of chemicals in order to maintain ecological standards of the farm. Work plan: days and periods of most agricultural activities with exemptions according to land ownership permits Payment: nature and amount of payment to the landowner for the use of the land; may be appropriate in terms of money or welfare by the crop share of garden maintenance: gives the responsibilities of landowners and farmers in the maintenance of the land Most of these conditions were collected from the land use contract of Alymer Backyard Farms and adapted to UrbanAgLaw.org managed by the Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC). The Sustainable Economies Law Center has developed a model agreement that is available here.
Compost: Agreement on the use and development of compost heaps and possibly the use of acceptable farm and kitchen waste from the landowner When developing a land use contract with a private landowner, you ensure that she and the landowner agree on the land covered by the agreement, on how you will use the land and on other important factors. Duration: duration of use, extension of contract and operating rights when the country is sold for the water use season: clarification of the source, use and payment of reasonable commercial efforts to obtain MOA`s authorization as soon as possible after the end date, satisfactorily for the necessary lenders, that the use of the land SPE must grant the insured company an interest in the security of its rights in the land use contracts. Admission: who is allowed to enter the property? Will this property be a farm or garden that only workers and volunteers will use, or will it be a public space? obtain the extension of the terms of the land use agreements (and maintenance) of the land use agreements that are reasonably necessary for the operation of the acquired vessels, respectively on June 30, 2015 and the date that predates the expiry of these land use agreements six months. Applicants may also enter into indigenous land use agreements (ILUA) with Native Title Parties to facilitate seniority.
