About the Event

Regenerative agriculture is a multi-faceted, holistic philosophy based on the common principles of re-connecting people and land, building soil health, reducing or eliminating the use of harmful chemicals, growing diverse crops, fair labor practices, humane livestock management, innovative and efficient use of resources. Far from new, Indigenous people cultivated principles of farming in harmony with nature centuries ago. Join us to explore regenerative agriculture and learn strategies to heal the land and grow healthy food in a way that does not exploit people, animals, and the land. Connect with conservation experts, meet other inspiring Wisconsin women that share your love of the land and learn about NRCS resources to support your conservation goals.
