American Farmland Trust’s Women for the Land Initiative hosted four Learning Circles with women farmers, landowners, and aspiring farmers, including a cadre of technical service providers, from November 2021-May 2022. During the Learning Circles, we collected input on two overarching questions about what most excites women about the potential benefits of prairie on their land/operation and what challenges they might face in implementing them. This report synthesizes the quantitative findings from the Learning Circle registration data and post event evaluation survey, qualitative data gleaned from Learning Circle discussions and listening session, and highlights and recommendations for future outreach to women farmers and landowners on prairie.
