Butler Soil & Water
Conserving our Natural Resources
More and more women are either purchasing farmland, managing land, or are now having to figure out what is needed on their families' land.
This series is aimed to not only empower you with information and guidance, but will also serve as a way to build a community and make connections so that you don't feel alone or overwhelmed.
The program will run from May to October, meeting once a month at different locations across the county and covering a variety of topics. Meeting time will be 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM with dinner included. Cost is $50 for series and resources. Registration is limited, to register and for a full program list click here.
If you have any questions at all please contact us either by phone (513) 887-3720 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
