    Schedule:

    2 – 4 pm  Caring for Your Land and Protecting Your Investment

    Much has changed in terms of agriculture and how we think about and manage the land. Learn about conservation practices that have been upgraded or replaced with more holistic and nurturing options that not only improve and sustain the soil and other natural resources on a single farm, but that positively impact your bottom line! Meet women professionals from agricultural and conservation agencies who will share information and resources—and answer your questions.

    4 – 5 pm Working with Renters, with Attorney Rachel Dahl, Hellmuth & Johnson

    If you are renting your land or having someone else managing it, learn about considerations of what to include in your lease agreement, including ways you can incorporate conservation into that agreement. 

    Space is limited to 20 registrants! Please RSVP by August 11.
