About the Event

This on-farm gathering will be an opportunity for women landowners, farmers, gardeners, and conservation professionals to connect around their shared interest in conservation practices and learn from one another.  It will be a casual potluck hosted by WiWiC Coaches Joy Miller (Keewaydin Farms/Driftless Curiosity) and Harriet Behar of Sweet Springs Farm. Joy and Harriet will spend some time talking about the conservation practices they've implemented, and others will be invited to share their experiences, including with implementing conservation plans.  Please bring a dish and/or beverage to share, and your questions! If you are intersted in a conservation plan for your land, you can sign up at the event.
