Women Caring for the Land: Nurturing New Careers in Ecological Restoration

This continuing project fills a niche both for aspiring female entrepreneurs in the growing field of ecological restoration and for the rising number of women inheriting farmland in Iowa. WFAN has built a successful conservation outreach program for them called Women Caring for the Land(SM). An ecological restoration entrepreneur could expect to earn $30 an hour, making this a viable part-time seasonal or full-time business opportunity. Our funding will expand this training program.
