Firm Partner to Present at National Women in Sustainable Ag Conference

We are thrilled to be presenting at the 4th National Conference for Women in Sustainable Agriculture, to be held on November 6th through 8th in Des Moines, Iowa. The conference is hosted by the Women Food and Ag Network (WFAN), and will feature more than 40 workshops on food, farming, advocacy, and sustainability topics.

“This is the first time this conference will be held in the Midwest, and we are excited to invite colleagues from all across the country to join us as presenters and attendees,” WFAN Executive Director Leigh Adcock said in a statement.

Partner Amanda Heyman will present on sustainable farm leases alongside attorney Angie Miller of Legal Aid of Nebraska's Farm & Ranch Project. The presentation will include tips and strategies for farmers and landowners on how to draft a lease to advance sustainable agricultural practices, discuss the use of leases in landowner tax credit programs, and explore how both landowners and tenants can use leases for economic advantage and possible succession.

Conference keynoters include Danielle Nierenberg of Food Tank, Pakou Hang of the Hmong American Farmers Association, and Kari Hamerschlag of Environmental Working Group. Field tours will be offered to showcase women-owned farms, farm-to-table restaurants, and sustainable agriculture projects statewide.
