Heartland Heroines: Empowering Farmland Owners

“Heartland Heroines” is a presentation on how two savvy conservationists empower working farm landowners to put their inner land ethic to work when working with their tenants. One of the presenters will be Robin Moore, who leads the Land Stewardship Project's statewide efforts to help non-farming landowners define their goals and then equitably insert conservation practices into their rental agreements.

The other presenter is Denise O'Brien, one of the founding mothers of Women, Food and Agriculture Network (WFAN) and the owner-operator of Rolling Acres Farm in Atlantic, Iowa.

There will be time for facilitated questions and discussion. Organizers of this event are seeking to offer examples of real watershed issues in the context of working solutions, complete with bumps in the road and inspiration for improving our communities.

These monthly presentations take place the first Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. They are organized by by Christine Curry of the Izaak Walton League/ Upper Mississippi River Initiative, and co-hosted by Zach Moss of Save Our Streams, Panora Conservation Chapter member Chris Henning, and Des Moines Chapter communication director Bud Hartley.
