Iowa has a successful outreach project—Women, Land and Legacy: Building Your Farms’ Future Today (WLL)SM. This project was started in 2004 and is expanding and gaining interest from many parts of Iowa. WLLSM involves government, non-profit organizations, and faith based organizations and works to reach agricultural women in rural areas.

• For women to inform agencies and organizations of their needs and what the agencies and organizations can do to help meet those needs.
• To develop a local network of agricultural women who will decide what programs, projects, and information they need to assist them in their farming and conservation decision making.
Women, Land and LegacySM helps agricultural women come together to converse, listen and become empowered to act on their landscape and in their community.
Through small group dialogue and focused conversation processes used by Women, Land, and LegacySM, Iowa agricultural women are given the opportunity to inform agencies and organizations of their strengths and needs and what specific outreach strategies would serve them best.
