Women, especially women landowners, are invited to a “Women Caring for the Land” seminar in Burwell March 14.
Women own one third of Nebraska's farmland.
The gathering will be held in Burwell from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Sandstone Grill, 16 Grand Ave. in Burwell.
Women landowners and managers are committed to conserving land and resources, but many simply don’t know how to realize their goals, organizers say.
Topics include land stewardship goals and how to achieve them. Conservation experts, also women, will share available resources – such as USDA cost-share programs, state loans, and other tools.
All interested women, including owners, operators and inheritors of farmland, are welcome, no matter your knowledge of conservation.
A free lunch will be provided. Space is limited. Registration is requested by March 1.
To register, contact Email Traci of the Center for Rural Affairs -- firstname.lastname@example.org or at 402.687.2103 ext. 1016.
"When you RSVP, please share what you most want to learn at the meeting. I'll shape our activities to suit your needs," Bruckner said.
This session of Women Caring for the Land is sponsored by the Center for Rural Affairs, Women Food and Ag Network and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. The series is funded by a grant from the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service Conservation Innovation Grant Program.
