Soil Sisters Celebrates Wisconsin Farms and Women Farmers
Wisconsin Women in Sustainable and Organic Agriculture Week is an official proclamation by Governor Tony Evers to showcase 16 percent growth and the impact of this movement. The Soil Sisters Celebration of Wisconsin Farms and Rural Life weekend from August 5 through 7 offers an immersive farming and culinary experience in the rural Green County communities in southern Wisconsin northwest of Chicago. All the activities are led by women committed to healthy, fresh products or farm-made, artisanal food products and other items.
The Soil Sisters Share on August 5 features resources, support and inspiration for women farmers, with more than a dozen organizations and experts sharing their experiences. Culinary events include the Pizza on the Farm Soil Sisters fundraiser at Inn Serendipity on August 6 and How to Taste Cheese Like a Pro at Landmark Creamery on August 7.
More than 25 workshops will cover organic gardening, seasonal cooking and food preservation, renewable energy and sustainable living, starting a food business, homesteading basics and launching a farm, bread baking, preserving the harvest and starting a farm during retirement, with full-day sessions on starting a community supported agriculture program, running a farm on renewable energy and launching a farmstay.
