Local Wisconsin Sustainable Farms Tours

Women Caring for the Land was created by the Women Food & Agriculture Network to serve women farmland landowners interested in learning more about conservation. The events provide women landowners an opportunity to network with peers and learn from resource professionals.

Registration and networking kick off a half hour before each event’s start time. All will include a potluck (main dish provided) so bring a dish to pass. Please dress for walking in fields. Men are welcome to join for the farm tour portion of the day; however, we do request that the learning circle space is for women only. The Women Caring for the Land series was developed by the Women, Food and Agriculture Network.
