Women Gaining Ground Conference this Saturday
We recently interviewed our Southwest Iowa Women, Land & Legacy chapter about the Women Gaining Ground Conference happening this Saturday, March 10 and how Women, Land & Legacy is impacting women in Fremont, Mills, Montgomery and Page counties.
"I think women have the opportunity to learn a lot, but I think they really come for the comradery. They enjoy learning together, discussing what they found out that they never knew before, discovering new ways to hold each other up as they struggle to support their family farms and their busy households. They are able to come together and share an experience that leaves a lasting impression."
For more details on the March 10th conference in Glenwood, go to their Facebook page or call 712-246-8631.
