WHAT: Virtual Learning Circle – Conservation in Action
WHEN: Tuesday, August 17th, 6:30-8:00PM, Eastern
WHERE: Zoom, link will be sent the week prior to the meeting
The environmental and economic health of our working lands are critical factors every farmer must consider. Conservation-minded decisions often carry long range impacts and come with hefty price tags. Across America, women are increasingly in decision making roles in agricultural conservation, but they face considerable barriers to reaching their conservation goals. Here in western New York, AFT is working to bring these women together through open dialogues about working lands, hands-on conservation experiences, and connecting local service providers to the women they serve. We help address questions you might have when considering conservation options for your land. Open to all women involved with New York agriculture, AFT invites you to join us for a discussion on conservation this August.
By participating in this discussion, you will:
This virtual meeting offers the same material as our in-person event on August 9th. We will learn about how conservation is put into action and answer questions about best management practices for agricultural land. We will virtually tour Table Rock Farm and have a co-owner of the farm, Meghan Hauser, on hand to answer your questions. In the virtual meeting, we will outline action-focused conservation steps you can take on your own land and help you efficiently plan your farm. You will still have the opportunity to informally interact with one another and reflect on goal-setting and personal learning experiences.
