As a follow-up to the virtual learning circle on July 6th and 8th, this event will provide womxn farmers and agricultural stewards with a chance to see on-farm water conservation in action, as well as discuss unique dynamics associated with land leases on public and private lands.
At the event, participants will:

- See conservation in action on small farms, including best-practices for irrigation and soil health;
- Learn about creative land access strategies at a unique publicly-owned agricultural park that hosts working farms;
