Come learn more about conservation practices and network with other farm women in your region! Chelsea Chandler and Scott Laeser run Plowshares & Prairie Farm in Argyle, where farming, conservation, and a sense of community are fused together. The farm includes a community supported agriculture (CSA) program with certified-organic produce, a small flock of laying hens, native habitats undergoing restoration and a historic barn available for weddings. Learn about: growing certified organic produce, running a CSA from a rural location, integrating land conservation and stewardship into a farm plan, and finding balance in life, family, and career.
Women Caring for the LandSM offers a peer-to-peer, informal discussion format to allow women landowners to talk about their farm management goals, facilitated by women conservationists. This response from one attendee is typical of our landowners’ experiences: “I came to learn what I can so I can contribute to conversations about the farm. If you don’t know, you don’t have a voice.”

Amy Fenn left her Madison library job in favor of tromping around a 40-acre hilltop trying to turn a depleted hayfield and unmanaged woods into a savanna/silvopasture. This is her 3rd year of grazing, fencing and building an off-grid home.
