Welcome to Wren Almitra, our new Women, Land and Legacy Coordinator! WFAN is thrilled to have Wren on our staff to help strengthen and grow Women, Land and Legacy.
Prior to working with WFAN, Wren worked with the Johnson County Soil and Water Conservation District in Iowa as the Rapid Creek Watershed Coordinator. While in that position she served on the Johnson County Women, Land and Legacy team for two years. As the WLL State Coordinator, Wren will work with county-based teams who provide educational and networking meetings and events for women landowners and farmers. Meetings range from financial planning, on-farm conservation, and tool use and maintenance, among many others.
Women, Land and Legacy is a USDA program coordinated through WFAN, and it was established in 2004 to help fill a void of information on farm management available to women landowners and farmers. The program helps agricultural women come together to converse, listen and become empowered to act on their landscape and in their community. Through small group dialogue and focused conversation processes, Iowa agricultural women are given the opportunity to inform agencies and organizations of their strengths and needs and what specific outreach strategies would serve them best.
