Heart of the Farm – Women in Agriculture Online ‘Coffee Chat’ Series

The Heart of the Farm-Women in Agriculture Conference series is an Extension program that addresses the needs of farm women by providing education on farm business topics, connecting them with agricultural resources and creating support networks. Due to COVID-19 we were not able to host the 2020 Heart of the Farm – Women in Ag workshops in person this year, so we’ve switched to an online way to connect!

Regional “Coffee Chats” will be held throughout the state.  Southeastern Wisconsin topics, dates, and times are below.

Time is both valuable and limited: it must be protected, used wisely, and budgeted. People who practice good time management techniques often find that they are more productive, have more energy for things they need to accomplish, feel less stressed and get more things done. This session will help participants understand some of the best practices associated with time management and increase understanding of why and how to use the different strategies to their benefit.
