In Her Boots: Sustainable Farming For Women, By Women

 

The In Her Boots format encourages women farmers to learn from each other by sharing their ideas and experiences. These day-long, on-farm workshops include a formal education session, a detailed farm tour, lunch and networking opportunities. Women just starting on their farm or food business journey are especially encouraged to attend.

Each Boots workshop covers different topics; plan to attend more than one!

 

“The In Her Boots workshop did so much for me.
It was the first female farming training I’d ever heard of.”

Frequently asked questions

 

Reviews:

“All walks of life and all levels of experience were represented and embraced. It also was a great combination of classroom-style learning and hands-on workshop.”

“I came away from the workshop more confident in my farming abilities, more sure of my farm dreams being realized, and more connected with like-minded women, including mentors that I’ve been able to reach out to on an ad hoc basis for the last 2 years now. I am now settled in on my farm and beginning to put into practice some of the important lessons I learned. I’m in my own boots now, in part because of In Her Boots.”

Women Caring for the Land:

Conservation Learning Circles for Women LandownersWomenCaringForLand

The MOSES In Her Boots Project partners with the Women, Food and Agriculture Network to offer FREE workshops in Wisconsin to teach women landowners how to improve water and soil quality on their agricultural acreage.

The goal is to empower women to make land management decisions that lead to stronger farm enterprises while improving and sustaining the quality of natural resources.

This event is for you if:
• You do or someday will own farmland, whether you farm it yourself or rent it out
• You manage or have stake in farmland for yourself, a family trust or in a partnership
• You are thinking of owning or investing in farmland in the future



Conservation Learning Circles:

• Discover state and federal programs to fund environmentally friendly land management.
•  Learn more about soil health and conservation principles.
•  Start a long-term management strategy for your land.

This project is a partnership of the Midwest Organic & Sustainable Education Service (MOSES); the Women, Food and Agriculture Network (WFAN); USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS); and other organizations working together to provide information, networking, and resources to Wisconsin women landowners and farmers.
