American Farmland Trust Creates Learning Circles to Engage Women Non-Operator Landowners in Conservation
American Farmland Trust is partnering with Cornell Cooperative Extension to offer women non-operator landowners the opportunity to engage in “learning circles” where women, “…share stories and relate their experiences partnering with farmers in ways that are mutually beneficial. This may include longer-term lease arrangements that give farmers more security, and implementing conservation practices that improve the health of the soil and protect water quality.” The next learning circle is this Thursday, January 25th, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Mt. Morris, New York. The topic will be ‘Conservation Values – Your Land is Your Legacy.’ Read the details here!
