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



“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 Landowners

These FREE workshops teach women landowners how to improve water and soil quality on their farmland to build stronger farm enterprises and improve the quality of the state’s natural resources.


Join us to discuss your land goals and learn about:
•  Programs to fund environmentally friendly land management.
•  Soil health and conservation principles.
•  Creating a long-term management strategy for your land.


Our events this spring have been canceled. Stay tuned, though. We’re working on a creative way to get you information to help you create a conservation-focused land management plan.
