Black Hawk County Online Learning Series

MORE INFORMATION:

For over a decade, Women, Food and Agriculture Network has organized fun and informative meetings for women landowners. We aim to provide women with the information, connections, and encouragement they need to take good care of their land. In partnership with Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), we are offering a free four-part online learning series from July-August 2020 for women who own or manage farmland in Black Hawk County, Iowa and are interested in learning about profitable farming methods that can help improve water quality and soil health.

 

The first meeting of this online series will study the advantages for you and your farmer when shifting to soil-improving farming methods. Led by Dr. Jean Eells and local conservationists, we will learn how to check soil health using common equipment and we will set personal study goals for the second meeting. The second meeting features agronomist Sarah Carlson from Practical Farmers of Iowa. She will answer personal study questions and will help us understand the limitations and opportunities of equipment when using cover crops and no-till methods. The third meeting covers the ins and outs of setting a fair rent as explained by Mollie Aronowitz of People's Company. The fourth meeting is led by lawyer Ed Cox, who will discuss leasing options and considerations for when passing on the land some day.

 

There is no pressure to adopt any new management style—we simply want to offer you the resources, knowledge, and tools to confidently manage your land. Having a better conversation with your tenant starts with having more information! The meetings will be held from 1:00-2:30PM CT on Zoom, a virtual meeting platform. Participation in all four meetings is required for registration
