About: Susan and David Weigandt purchased their 160-acre farm in 1978 for recreational use but conservation became a priority. They have completed timber stand improvement projects, harvests, tree and shrub plantings and invasive species control. Eighty acres are enrolled in Managed Forest Law (MFL) and another 80 acres in grass and pasture where they’ve done erosion control projects and rent out for a small herd of beef cows. Other projects that keep them busy are oak savannah restoration, additional tree and shrub plantings, and they are currently working on placing a conservation easement on the property.
Women Caring for the Land was designed by the Women Food & Ag Network to serve women farmland landowners who are interested in learning more about conservation. Research has shown women value women-only meetings with their peers. These events provide women landowners and farmers the opportunity to network with their peers and learn from resource professionals. For these reasons, we do request that the early portion be women only .
Registration and networking start at 10:00am. Potluck lunch at noon, bring a dish to pass!
