Women who own or manage farmland in Missouri are invited to participate in a free conservation discussion focused on soil health and cover crops on Tuesday, November 18th at the Remington Nature Center located in St. Joseph, MO. The program, sponsored by Women, Food and Agriculture Network and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources Soil and Water Conservation Program, is called Women Caring for the LandSM. If you know of a friend or family member who might benefit from attending, please share this information with her.

The meeting will begin with registration, coffee and resource sharing at 8:30 a.m. Lunch is provided, and during an afternoon field tour. We will walk a short distance, so please wear or bring appropriate clothing and footwear. We will return to the Center for dessert and wrap-up, and end the meeting by 3 p.m.

Maintaining healthy soil is the key to productivity and environmental health for our farmland. Women landowners who attend this meeting will learn to assess and improve the health of their soils through practices such as cover crops, no-till and strip-till, among other conservation practices.

In order for us to have the right amount of food available, please RSVP by 5 p.m. Friday, November 14th, to Ann Gilland at the Worth County Farm Services Agency office, 660.564.3341 or to ann.gilland@mo.usda.gov. For more information about this program, visit www.womencaringfortheland.org or call Carol at 641-430-2540. If you need physical accommodations, please let Carol know.
