Women who own farmland and/or farm in Mahaska and Marion counties are invited to join their Women, Land & Legacy (WLL) team at one of two upcoming Listening Sessions. The Listening Session is an opportunity for women who are engaged in agriculture and land management to let the WLL local team know what their strengths and needs are and to share ideas about how agencies and organizations can better assist them. Based on feedback from the Listening Sessions, the local team will help organize future events and field days that fit the educational interests and needs of female landowners and farmers.
Registration and a light meal will begin at 6pm. Meeting will start promptly at 6:30pm. Please choose a location that is most convenient for you.

WLL is a unique USDA state-wide program, currently active in 29 counties, providing locally-led education and outreach, as well as networking opportunities, particularly for women landowners and farmers in Iowa. In an agricultural climate where nearly 50% of land in Iowa is owned or co-owned by women, programming that educates and empowers female landowners and farmers is a crucial need for the future of Iowa farms.
This event is free and open to the public, women are strongly encouraged to attend.
