Maintaining healthy soil is the key to productivity and environmental health for our farmland.  Nearly half the farmland in Iowa is currently owned or co-owned by women and we know women are interested in preserving Iowa’s soil and improving water quality. Women Caring for the LandSM offers a peer-to-peer, informal discussion format to allow women landowners to talk about their farm management goals, facilitated by women conservationists.

Upcoming Women Caring for the Land meetings are happening in Toledo (April 2nd), Dallas Center (April 3rd), Story City (April 10th) and Forest City (April 24th). More details on these meetings can be found here.

Two other Women Caring for the Land meetings will happen in Iowa City (May 1st) and Cedar Falls (May 2nd). More details on those meetings here.
