In Her Boots: Sustainable Farming For Women, By Women
Spend the day with an inspiring group of women farmers and educators dedicated to transforming our food system. These day-long, on-farm workshops includes a detailed farm tour, lunch and networking opportunities. With a focus on sharing experiences, stories and ideas, the In Her Boots format builds on the idea that women farmers learn best from each other. Bring your questions! Women just starting on their farm or food business dream are especially encouraged to attend.
Each Boots workshop covers different topics and women are welcome to attend more than one.

Women Caring for the Land:
Conservation Training for Women Landowners
Women Caring for the Land is an innovative program that helps female non-operator landowners learn more about conservation practices they can employ on their land. The MOSES Rural Women’s Project is partnering with Women, Food and Agriculture Network to offer three workshops in Wisconsin in April. The agenda includes an informational morning session, lunch, and a bus tour of area farmland to look at land conservation practices. The same material will be offered at each workshop; please attend the one closest to you which fits your schedule.
