Our host, Alicia Gasaway:
Alicia and her family followed their dream to trade the urban life for rural living, moving to their property in 2021, where she cultivates a food forest, practices rotational grazing, and enjoys learning about energy healing, herbal medicine, and crafting her own tea blends and integrating homeschooling two young kids. Alicia serves as a Stewardship Ambassador with the Women, Food & Agriculture Network/WFAN, sharing her conservation story. Before moving to WI, Alicia was active in food justice issues and community gardening organizing in the Twin Cities.
Women, all who identify as such, are welcome to attend – from landowners to farmers to conservationist enthusiasts – whatever your background, from beginners to experts! This Learning Circle model intentionally provides ample time and a safe space for story sharing, networking and collaborative learning. We all have something to both share and learn together.
Event is fully outdoors. Dress for the weather. Bring a sunhat, sunscreen and good walking shoes. Please bring a chair/camp chair.
