How two savvy conservationists empower working farm landowners to put their inner land ethic to work in consort with their tenants
Next Tuesday, June 1 the Izaak Walton League's web program, Heartland Heroines, will focus on work with non-operating farm land owners with guest presenters Robin Moore (Land Stewardship Project) and Denise O’Brien (farmer and co-founder, Women, Food, and Agriculture Network). Please register in advance for the link to join.
“Heartland Heroines” Tuesday, June 1st @ 7 pm Central Time This presentation is in the “Thinking Like a Watershed” series of monthly presentations by the Izaak Walton League's Upper Mississippi River Initiative.
How two savvy conservationists empower working farm landowners to put their inner land ethic to work in consort with their tenants: Robin Moore leads LSP’s statewide efforts to help non-farming landowners define their goals and then equitably insert conservation practices into their rental agreements. Denise O'Brien is one of the founding mothers of WFAN and continues her contributions with her family’s organic farm at Rolling Acres Farm in Atlantic, Iowa.
There will be time for facilitated questions and discussion. Organizers seek to offer examples of real watershed issues in the context of working solutions, complete with bumps in the road and inspiration for improving our communities.
The monthly presentations take place the first Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. They are organized by Christine Curry of the Izaak Walton League/ Upper Mississippi River Initiative, and co-hosted by Zach Moss of Save Our Streams, Panora Conservation Chapter member Chris Henning, and Des Moines Chapter Communication Director Bud Hartley.
