Happy Earth Day!
Happy Earth Day from all of us here at Wisconsin Women in Conservation. We hope your day was full of, well, HOPE! One of the things that give us the most hope for the healing of our land, soil, and water is spending time with you: conservation-minded women working hard in myriad ways to leave the land better than it is today.
This year we've got lots of great opportunities planned to connect with such women - farmers, landowners, volunteers, conservation educators and professionals - and we look forward to seeing you both in person and virtually! Our spring Climate Smart Soils Solutions events are happening in beautiful, inspiring venues across the state starting next Tuesday and Wednesday in Stevens Point and New London. All have educators presenting, time for networking, and food. Of course they are all free!
We kicked off the day listening in to Wisconsin Public Radio's Morning Show with Kate Archer Kent, which featured a show on Regenerative Agriculture that featured two of our Conservation Coaches! Did you hear them? Rachel Bouressa, of Bouressa Family Farms in New London, and Kirsten Jurcek, of Brattset Family Farm in Jefferson, are both grazing experts who did a great job of explaining the value of managed grazing and talking about resources to learn and implement regenerative practices.
Both graziers are leading WiWiC Farm Tour Field Days at their properties this summer. Registration is live now on our Events Page!
