About the Event

This on-farm gathering will be an opportunity for women landowners to connect around their shared interest in conservation practices and learn from one another.  It will be a casual brunch potluck hosted by WiWiC Conservation Coach Stacey Botsford in her greenhouse. Stacey will spend some time talking about the conservation practices she has implemented on Red Door Family Farm, specifically related to their vegetable production.  Others will be invited to share their conservation experiences as well.  Please bring a chair and a dish and/or beverage to share, and any questions you may have. If you are intersted in a conservation plan for your land, please sign up at the event.

Stacey and her husband Tenzin own Red Door Family Farm, a diversified organic vegetable farm in Central Wisconsin. They have made conservation the cornerstone of their farm since its inception in 2013 and take pride in the fact that they have made a successful farm business while prioritizing the land, water, and their community's health. They sell their produce locally through CSA, farmers markets, and wholesale outlets. 

What To Expect:

  • To network with other women in the area around shared dreams, challenges, and experiences of conservation.
  • To learn about the WiWiC project and opportunities that exist for women landowners to access conservation practices
  • To gather on a working farm, with some uneven ground and uncertain weather - dress accordingly.
  • To eat, talk, laugh and connect.

Photos are taken at WiWiC events to help amplify the work being done by Wisconsin's women land stewards, and to help promote future events. Your registration grants consent for your photo to be taken and used for these purposes.
