August 9, 2021
Women for the Land Learning Circle - Conservation Action, followed by a bus tour at Table Rock Farm in Castile, NY
Open to all women involved in agriculture in New York, AFT invites you to join us for a peer-to-peer Learning Circle and Farm Tour this August. Our focus is Conservation in Action. Attendees will meet at an immersive photograph exhibit featuring western New York female farmers. We will hear about how conservation is put into action from a certified crop consultant who specializes in on-farm conservation planning. Then we will board a bus and head over to an award-winning family-run dairy, Table Rock Farm, that is at the forefront of agricultural innovation, to see it all in person. Meghan Hauser, a co-owner of the farm, will lead us through the efforts she and her team have implemented to make their 100+ year old farm an environmentally and economically thriving operation. After the tour, we will reflect on the experience and discuss action steps we can take to achieve our own conservation goals.
