Winter Camp Webinar: Nurturing What's Around Us and Within Us
As women, we naturally care for and nurture those things we value in our lives, but often we forget about nurturing ourselves. By this time of year, many of our aspiring New Year’s Goals may have already failed, and that leaves us wondering how to get to a grounding sense of well being.

About the Event
YOU are the most vital component of YOUR life! Sustainability is about regeneration, allowing nature to replenish what we take - life requires resources from our body that must be replenished, too. Your body is what propels every aspect of your farm...how much attention do you give to it? Just as depleted soil will not produce healthy crops, we don't do our best work when we are burned out.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to the physical challenges on our farms. Each farm is different, each person is different, but we all work hard (and come back for more, even when we're exhausted).
Farming builds resilience and longevity, for ourselves and our land together. Being smart about how we use our bodies will ensure our farm's long-term success. When we think about sustainability, how often do we think of it in terms of our choices about ourselves?
As women, we naturally care for and nurture those things we value in our lives, but often we forget about nurturing ourselves. Or even listening to our bodies. By this time of year, many of our aspiring New Year’s Goals may have already failed, and that leaves us wondering how to get to a grounding sense of well being. How do we survive and thrive with all the time and energy everything else is taking?
Come for ideas and strategies on how to start your well-being journey and learn how to detect your overwhelm so you can support yourself. Prioritizing your wellbeing CAN optimize the wellbeing of your farm
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 a Winter Camp Webinar in both January and February.

WiWiC is a state-wide collaborative effort led by the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute in partnership with Wisconsin Farmers Union, Renewing the Countryside and Marbleseed (formerly MOSES). A five-year multi-faceted project funded by the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), WiWiC brings together Wisconsin women landowners, farmers, farmworkers, urban growers and conservationists to connect and learn about conservation practices, resources, and funding opportunities.
