Women Caring for the Land meeting: Windom, MN
May 11 @ 3:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Women Caring for the Land incorporates a women-only, peer-to-peer informal discussion alongside an afternoon visit to see and discuss conservation practices in action.

The meeting starts at 10 a.m. with registration beginning at 9:30, continental breakfast and lunch provided. We will finish up with closing discussion and dessert by 4 p.m.

As estimates indicate that women now own or co-own nearly half the farmland in the Midwest, many wonder whether they are doing all they can to improve soil and water quality while maintaining high agricultural productivity. Maintaining healthy soil is the key to productivity and environmental health for our farmland. Women landowners who attend this meeting will learn to assess and improve the health of their soils.

In order for us to have the right amount of food available, please RSVP by 4 PM May 6 at this link

May 18 @ 1:30 pm – 9:00 pm

This Women Caring for the Land meeting for female farmland owners focuses on beginning conversations about transitioning your land that include conservation values.
