Soil Health Workshop - Farmington

We are excited to invite you, as a woman farmland owner, to a “Women Caring for the Land” workshop. These workshops are designed to provide information on conservation options and connect you with local resources, as well as introduce you to other women landowners.

The workshops are free, run from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and include lunch! The morning schedule includes introductions to each other, to conservation professionals, and to local programs and resources. After lunch, we will hop on a bus and visit some local farms to see how they are “caring for the land.”
