About the Event

This on-farm gathering will be an opportunity for women landowners, farmers, gardeners, and conservation professionals to connect around their shared interest in conservation practices and learn from one another. It will be a casual potluck hosted by Bonnie Warndahl, owner of Winnow Burrow Farm and Florals. Bonnie will spend some time talking about the conservation practices they've implemented such as low-till and occultation tarping; others will be invited to share their experiences, including implementing conservation plans. Please bring a dish and/or beverage to share, and your questions! If you are interested in a conservation plan for your land, you can sign up at the event.

What To Expect:

  • To network with other women in the area around shared dreams, challenges, and experiences of conservation.
  • To learn about the WiWiC project and opportunities that exist for women landowners to access conservation practices
  • To gather on a working farm, with some uneven ground and uncertain weather - dress accordingly.
  • To eat, talk, laugh and connect.

Event Details:

  • Event is free to attend but registration is required and space is limited.
  • Women, all who identify as such, are welcome to attend – from  landowners to farmers to conservationist enthusiasts –  whatever your background, from beginners to experts!
  • Please bring a dish to share and a camp chair if possible

Getting to the Farm:

From County Road M turn onto 1080th Avenue (only goes east away from the Red Cedar River). After the 90-degree bend (1/4 mile), turn right onto the dead end road by the row of mailboxes (this continues onto 1080th. If you miss the turn you will be on 930th Street). Winnowburrow Farm is the first driveway on the LEFT. You will cross a stream/wetland area and make an immediate left to go straight up the hill on our access road to the gardens. This is a turf road—no gravel. There are two mowed parking areas. You will immediately see overflow parking to the right. OR continue up the hill until you see the barn and fenced garden. Turn left into the field and park in the designated area. We ask that able-bodied folks park in the lower zone first and walk up the access road so that there is plenty of room for lesser-abled guests to park up top. There will be signage !

Photos are taken at WiWiC events to help amplify the work being done by Wisconsin's women land stewards, and to help promote future events. Your registration grants consent for your photo to be taken and used for these purposes.
