Time & Location

Aug 29, 2024, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM


About the Event

Soil health is rooted in promoting diverse and active soil biological communities. Continued use of cover crops to feed soil organisms during non-production times of the year can foster many soil health benefits, from increased nutrient availability to reduced soil compaction. Jamie will talk about cover crop species commonly used in Wisconsin – their potential benefits and challenges and where they can fit in row crop and vegetable crop production systems.

This Summer Camp series is an opportunity to join women landowners from across the state who share your passion for stewarding the land and connect with expert advice, resources, and opportunities around the virtual campfire.

Whatever your background, from beginners to experts, all women are welcome and we want to hear your story.  Feel free to bring your lunch. S’mores optional. Wisconsin Women in Conservation is hosting four sessions from May through August on the last Thursday of the month.
