Conservation Learning Circles: Mid-Atlantic Women in Agriculture

October 20, 2020 @ 10:00 am 11:30 pm

This session will be split up into two days – October 20 & 22 and will focus on services available to women landowners in Virginia, with a particular emphasis on Loudoun and Prince William counties.

Join American Farmland Trust and your local conservation agencies at an upcoming *Virtual Women for the Land Learning Circles in Virginia.

At Learning Circles, women in agriculture gather to hear from each other and agricultural resource providers in their local communities. Information is shared on practices and programs that support soil health, water quality, climate resilience, farm viability, and/or legacy planning.

AFT will primarily host these gatherings online in the coming months to keep producers and landowners safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Some gatherings or portions of gatherings may be hosted in person, as conditions allow.

These learning circles are free to attend, but registration is required.
