Women's Farmland Owner Workshop
Women who own or manage farmland in McHenry and surrounding counties are invited to participate in a conservation discussion and field tour on October 5 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Alden Township Building, 8515 S Alden Rd.
'The program is part of our Learning Circle programs for women farmland owners. There will be informal discussion and resource-sharing in the morning, followed by lunch. An optional afternoon field tour will allow participants to view farmland conservation practices in the area. Learning Circles offer a women-only peer-to-peer, informal discussion format to allow women landowners to talk about their individual land stewardship goals and share information with one another. Women conservationists will help facilitate the discussion.
