Free Conservation Training for Women Landowners

Women who own farmland in Wisconsin are invited to one of three free workshops early next month to learn how to protect and improve the quality of their land. The workshops will be offered in Green Bay on May 2, Algoma May 3, and Ephraim May 4.

Women Caring for the Land is an innovative program facilitated by the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES) and the Women, Food & Agriculture Network. It brings together women landowners and female conservation professionals to discuss practices for improving water and soil quality on the land.

Each workshop runs from 8:30 am to 3 pm. The morning session covers various conservation-focused land management practices, and introduces landowners to local programs that can help fund them. Lunch is provided, and is followed by a bus tour to see farms in the area that use conservation practices.

Pre-registration is required and space is limited. To register or see more details, go to
