Welcome to the Buchanan County Chapter of
Women, Land and Legacy

Women, Land & Legacy (WLL) is a USDA education and outreach program that has impacted thousands of Iowa women in agriculture. Working locally in counties throughout the state WLL empowers women landowners and farmers to be agents of positive change in their communities through active participation, educational sessions and networking opportunities.


WLL provides participants opportunities to inform agencies what their needs are and bridges partnerships between government, non-profit organizations, faith-based and community groups. These partners provide local, relevant information, speakers, and resources to local women so they can make the best farming and conservation choices for their land.
