MAP OF MY KINGDOM

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. In the drama, Angela Martin, a lawyer and mediator in land transition disputes, shares stories of how farmers and landowners she has worked with over the years approached their land successions. Following the 60-minute performance, there will be a 20-minute talkback followed by a two-hour workshop in which participants will leave with a solid draft of a letter that offers basics about their farmland, their strongest memories, and what they want most for their farmland’s future.
