About the Event

At this gathering, we will dig into the details on dirt—no, make that  soil! What can you learn about soil from the way it feels and smells?  What does its texture mean for how you manage it? For this event we'll  have some soil samples to investigate, but also invite you to bring  samples of your own if you'd like. Just dig a small amount (think  trowel, not spade) and place it in a bag or other container, and make a  note of the conditions where you collected it. No judgement here, we  just want to geek out a bit together on how truly fascinating soil is!

All women farmers, landowners and conservationists from Marathon, Portage, Shawano and surrounding counties are welcome to attend-- whatever your background, from beginners to experts! 

Join us to connect with practices and NRCS resources that support you  stewarding the long term health of your land, including the positive  impacts of an integrated agroforestry approach.

Speakers: We will be joined by soil enthusiest Jamie Pattion, Senior Outreach Specialist,  UW Department of Horticulture
