Abstract

WLL sm is a locally-led, interagency collaboration between FSA, NRCS, ISU Extension and other key non-profits designed to provide Iowa's farm women a risk mana gement tool that brings them together at the local level to empower them to act on their landscapes and within their communities. The collaboration has emphasized two primary processes to accomplish this goal: the first is to listen and learn from Iowa's wo men farmland owners about their vision and goals for the land in facilitated Listening Sessions at the county or county cl uster level. The second is to use information from the Listening Sessions to create opportuni ties through facilitated Learning Sessions . In accordance with women's values , the local Learning Sessions address topics local women identify as important, and ad dress topics in ways that improve women's abilities to make deci sions about their land.
