Women who own or manage farmland in the Indian Creek Watershed and surrounding areas are invited to participate in a free, online conservation meeting focused on soil health on March 3 from 9-11 a.m. CT. This meeting is part of Women Caring for the Land, a program coordinated by the Women, Food & Agriculture Network and sponsored by the Indian Creek Soil Health Partnership.

Maintaining healthy soil is the key to productivity and environmental health for our farmland and for water quality. Women landowners who attend this meeting will learn to assess and improve the health of their soils and water through practices such as the use of cover crops and other conservation initiatives. There is no pressure to adopt any new management style—the program is simply an opportunity to offer you the resources, knowledge, and tools to confidently manage your land. Having a better conversation with your tenant or family members starts with having more information! 

WHEN: Wednesday, March 3 from 9-11 a.m. CT

WHERE: Via Zoom, an on-line meeting platform. The meeting is free but does require pre-registration. 

HOW TO REGISTER: Register online at
