Event Description

Who’s going to get the farm? And what are they going to do with it? Will your future plans for your land create harmony or strife for your family? Or have you even started to think that far ahead? Today, a vast amount of land in the United States is owned by those over 65 years old. Some have made their wishes clear for the future of their property. Others are courting family upheaval by not planning in concrete ways.

Map of My Kingdom, a play commissioned by Practical Farmers of Iowa and written by Iowa’s Poet Laureate Mary Swander, tackles the critical issue of land transition. This performance is designed to help families with the hard discussion regarding the transfer of land to the next generation of farmers.

Attending this program is free of charge. Theatre seating is limited.

This performance brought to you by Silos and Smokestacks National Heritage Area and the Grout Museum.
