Farmer Learning Community Opportunity
Meet and network with local farmers about voluntary conservation practices, led by area farmers.
This is an ongoing meeting, and we anticipate getting together 4-6 times throughout the year, so keep your drive time in mind. These will be small groups of about 10-20, so your in-person participation is important to the group and your ideas will be heard!
About The Meetings:
About The Group’s Leaders: As a Conservation Stewards for America’s Conservation Ag Movement, selected producers wrote essays and applied to lead farmer-to-farmer learning groups in their communities to highlight the benefits of innovation and encourage information sharing that meets the needs of unique farm operations and helps achieve the goal of continuous improvement of agronomics, resiliency and economics.
