To find out if you are eligible to participate, please complete the Landownership application form. Upon acceptance, you will be provided with the registration link. The registration will close on February 15.


Do you own land in rural North Carolina? Are you unclear exactly what you have and how it can be used for your or your community’s benefit? Resourceful Communities is hosting a training for qualified landowners. This workshop will cover the basics of landownership and will help you understand:

  • Ownership structures
  • Taxes
  • Deeds
  • Access
  • Easements
  • Determining value
  • Possible uses
  • And more

Our workshop is offered at no-cost, but given our limited funding, we are asking interested participants to fill out a brief questionnaire to determine eligibility. Eligible participants must:

  • Own land in Vance, Granville, Warren, Halifax, Franklin, or Northampton Counties.
  • Submit a property address. (Resourceful Communities will use this to prepare maps and other property information for use during our workshop.)
  • Limit participation to 2 people per address submitted.


At the end of this workshop, participants will have the tools and knowledge needed to make a basic assessment of the land holdings.


There is no cost to attend this workshop. However, all participants must be pre-registered.


Snacks and Lunch will be provided. Our caterer will do their best to accommodate meals. If you require a special diet, please be sure to bring something you can snack on.


A mileage allowance will be offered. 1 per car.


Overnight lodging is NOT offered for this event.

Generous support from The Duke Endowment makes this gathering possible.
