Women Caring for the Land Meeting
May 16 @ 8:30 am – 3:30 pm

Each meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. and go until 3:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided, and during an afternoon field tour participants will travel to a nearby farm to watch a demonstration of soil testing. The tests will measure for soil structure and stability and infiltration. We will walk a short distance into a field, so wear or bring appropriate clothing and footwear.

Maintaining healthy soil is the key to productivity and environmental health for our farmland. Women landowners will learn at this meeting how to assess and improve the health of their soils through practices such as cover crops, no-till and strip-till, among other conservation practices. Over half the farmland in Iowa is currently owned or co-owned by women. WFAN’s program Women Caring for the LandSM offers a peer-to-peer, informal discussion format to allow women landowners to talk about your individual farm management goals, facilitated by women conservationists.

RSVP to Vanessa at vfixmer-oraiz@cityofkalona.org or at 319-656-2310
