Has anyone ever leased land for gardening?
A woman I know is considering this, since her property is quite small. She is thinking about an acre or two with a multi-year lease for growing annual food plants. Although she's read about it, she doesn't know anyone who has actually done it.
How would you approach the landowner?
I'm assuming that the agreement would be in writing, as weasely as some people can be these days. What kind of financial arrangement? Would the landowner get part of the crop?
What about water? Insurance? Fencing?
