The Rural Women’s Project, a project of the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES), is proud to partner with the WFAN to collaboratively bring the Women Caring for the Land℠ program to Wisconsin. These free workshops support women landowners in learning about land conservation and connecting with various state agencies for program and local resource information. Read more about the program from MOSES’ Organic Broadcaster newsletter or on Rootstock.

Thanks to a Conservation Innovation Grant (CIG) in partnership with NRCS, the Women Caring for the Land (WCL) program will be offered in Wisconsin through 2016.  

Three fabulous workshops took place in April, 2014 in Dodgeville, Viroqua, and Monroe.  A big thank you to our regional partner, Southwest Badger Resource & Development Council for their collaborative support  along with Wisconsin Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), participating federal and state agencies and our local partner groups.
