TOLDEO, Iowa — Join Tama County Women, Land & Legacy and Iowa Learning Farms (ILF) for their upcoming event, “ConservationSpeak: How to Talk With Your Landowner or Tenant.” This event will be held on Thursday, January 30 at the State Bank of Toledo Community Room, 103 S. Broadway in Toledo. Dessert and registration will begin at 6:30 p.m. with the event following at 7:00.
For farm operators, it can sometimes be frustrating when they want to add conservation practices to the ground they rent when the landowner doesn’t understand the practices or how the practices can benefit the farm long-term. On the flip side, how can a landowner effectively approach his or her renter about adding practices to the renter’s “Conservation Toolbox” in order to improve or sustain the farm’s productivity?
Join in the conversation as two conservation-minded Tama County producers share their experiences with ConservationSpeak. In addition, Liz Juchems Ripley of ILF will present Iowa State University research on conservation and introduce ILF’s two publication series on ConservationSpeak—Talking With Your Landlord and Talking With Your Tenant.
An RSVP is preferred by January 29 by phoning Mel at 641-484-2702, ext. 305 or by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is free and open to the general public, both women and men.
