About the Event

It is that time of year, the birds are singing, the sun is shining and the flowers are springing to life. As these flowers emerge from the ground and begin to open, the bees and the butterflies are swooping in, pollinating along the way. It is refreshing seeing all the spring activities taking place, but have you ever stopped to think about what is happening beneath the surface of the soil to allow this to happen? Soil health is an absolute wonder. At this gathering, there will be a rainfall simulation along with other NRCS resources , and we can learn together about the impact you can have on what is happening under the soil surface.

Bring a friend along and join fellow women landowners, farmers and conservationists along with local experts, to delve into learning the benefits of cover crops, no till and the value of keeping that soil covered.  Bring your experiences with, we love hearing your stories!

Lunch will be provided.

The Goodman Center has been here for our community for 70 years, and with you in our corner, we'll be around for another 70 (and then some!). We serve people ages 3 to 103 with our children and youth programs, older adult activities and meals, food pantry, fitness center, event spaces and more. Take a look around and see what we're all about, and then get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
