There are massive land transitions that are now at play. How does our language, our role, and our understanding of relationships need to change to reflect the shifting values in a world trying to get beyond the commodification of land? Join real estate agent, Cassandra Ferrera, in an exploration of an alternative to current real estate conventions that put the land, stewardship, justice and liberation at the center of land transitions vs. the bottom line. Cassandra and her colleagues are creating a new organization to serve ethical land transitions that are able to interface with the modern real estate industry.
