The Women4theLand initiative of the Indiana Conservation Partnership works to provide information to women landowners, farmers and natural resource professionals, empowering them to make informed decisions that positively impact our land, food, and quality of life. Women4theLand hosts educational and outreach events for women to share conservation information and practices and to help improve and sustain our Indiana farmland. We are working to build a network of informed and active women who care about the land and our future.
