Get to the heart of the farm at women's agriculture conference


A Heart of the Farm, Women in Agriculture conference, runs Feb. 21 at the St. Croix Inn, 11390 South Fifth St., Solon Springs.

The Heart of the Farm-Women in Agriculture conference series is a University of Wisconsin-Extension program committed to addressing the needs of farm women by providing education on farm business topics, connecting them with agricultural resources and creating support networks.

This conference provides women with the opportunity to network with other farm women; and learn about farm business arrangements, how farm women can make a difference and how to balance your life. A special session on wine and cheese will end the day.

The conference begins with registration at 9 a.m. and will end at 3:15 p.m. with door prizes.

Lunch will be catered by Rich's Cuisine.
