Learning Circles provide women the opportunity to meet other landowners, share their farm successes and challenges, discuss goals for their land, and get advice and technical assistance. Nearly half of all farmland in Illinois is owned or co-owned by women, and many women now manage farmland on their own.
Participants are encouraged to bring their questions, ideas and concerns about their farm and farming in general. The event is open to women with all levels of experience, whether they are actively managing a farm, or they’ve recently inherited a farm and are learning about how to run a healthy and productive operation.
After lunch we will take a short trip to a nearby farm.
