Empowering Farm Women is a program that brings farm women together to increase their management skills for today’s agriculture businesses. Many farm women are currently managing some or all aspects in many farming operations. This program is designed to bring ladies together to explore and share management strategies to improve their farm businesses.
This year’s theme for the series is Healthy Farm, Healthy Family. Realizing that farm women delicately balance their business and family roles, we are focusing on a farm management topic, as well as a health topic during each session. The Empowering Farm Women program provides a safe environment for women to learn and grow together.
Join us for three sessions on topics that can help keep your family and farm business thriving during the challenging times ahead.
There is no cost to participate, and a light meal will be provided.

2017 Empowering Farm Women
January 17, 2017 | Education and Resources | Comments Off on Empowering Farm Women Program
Over the years, many water wells around old farmsteads have been left abandoned and unused. Water wells are a direct conduit between the land surface and the groundwater resource. Herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, animal and human waste can all enter an abandoned well and potentially into our drinking water source. They also can pose a safety hazard especially for children.
The Carroll County Soil and Water Conservation District will provide assistance to landowners with the closure of abandoned water wells. The conservation district will provide cost-share at a rate of 75% of actual costs (up to $500.00 per well). All plugging activities must be conducted by a licensed well driller. These program funds are limited to total cost share of $ 1500 per calendar year, and application will be approved on a first come first serve basis.
More information, including application information, is available on the flyer: Abandoned Well Cost Share Flyer
This program is funded by the Carroll County Soil and Water Conservation District
