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? 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.
-6:30: Play performance
-7:30- Q&A with panel
-8:00- Refreshments, and information tables.
“These stories are moving and engaging and remind us that we all share responsibility for the health of the land while we are here. Easy to mount, accessible and timely, Swander's play is a catalyst to help audience members address issues of land transfer productively. This is art serving its purpose in a meaningful way." -Susan Wolverton, Professor of Theatre, Coe College.
