Female land ownership series set

TROY — OSU Extension in Miami and Champaign counties is offering a series designed to help female landowners understand critical conservation and farm management issues related to owning land. It will provide participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to talk with tenants about farming and conservation practices used on their land. The farm management portion will provide an understanding of passing land on to the next generation and help establish fair rental rates by looking at current farm budgets.

The series runs from 9-11:30 a.m. every Friday, Feb. 26 through March 26 and will be a blend of in-person and virtual sessions. It is $50 for the series. If you are only able to attend a couple of sessions, it is $10 per session, but there is value in getting to know other participants in the series and talking with them each week. Registration can be found at go.osu.edu/legacy2021. For more information, contact Amanda Bennett at bennett.709@osu.edu. The registration deadline is Feb. 24. The detailed agenda can be found at miami.osu.edu/events/lady-landowners-leaving-legacy.
