About the Event
Pack your camp chair and join us for a summer’s afternoon in June at the farm of one of our very own WiWiC Conservation Coaches, Lauren Langworthy!
We will take a walk around Blue Ox Farm to see what Lauren along with husband Caleb are doing and how they are doing it. They raise grass-fed sheep, sell lamb, and have a small beef herd doing restoration work on their farm. See first-hand how they have worked with the NRCS (Natural Resources Conservation Service) to implement several conservation projects, with a special focus on grazing.
Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
All women farmers, landowners and conservationists from Polk, Barron, Dunn and surrounding counties are welcome to attend-- whatever your background, from beginners to experts!
