Posted: Updated:

Guam - University of Guam agricultural economist Dr. Bob Barber says his division is planning a series of workshops to help assist individuals under the Chamorro Land Trust Commission who currently have agricultural leases. Barber and his team have been conducting field inspections.

He says most of the individuals with CLTC agricultural properties don't have farm plans.  He adds, "All of those that were not in compliance, one part of the compliance letter is to require them to submit a realistic farm plan, not a dream farm plan or a farm plan for ten years, but a farm plan they can implement immediately with the resources they have and that's what these workshops are going to be about.

"We're going to be talking about issues on what they can do now even if you don't have water lines coming into your property or you have rocky soils."

The ten-hour series of workshops is also opened to other farmers interested in attending. Barber says the general public is asked to pay $20 for each session. The first one is scheduled for next Monday from 6pm to 8:30pm.
