Women Land Owner Fall Event 2013
East Pottawattamie Women Land Owners shared the perfect Fall October afternoon enjoying hands-on Conservation Education hosted by East Pottawatamie Soil and Water Conservation District in Oakland, Iowa.
Fifteen ladies started the afternoon at the Golden Hills Resource Conservation & Development office in Oakland, discussing local foods, high tunnels, and vermicomposting. Next, we loaded the bus up and began our cover crop tour of local East Pott farmers. After that we headed out to the South Place. This is a very own wildlife resort hidden right here in our back yard. Following a beautiful tour of the land and conservation practices, we headed back to Oakland for a catered supper by Our Daily Bread of Griswold, IA. Following the dinner, a county specialist presented on "Harvesting Rainwater". Everyone had the opportunity to build and take home their very own rain barrel.
