About the Chapter:

Woman Owning Woodlands Network (WOWnet) is a network of women who learn, educate, and work together to build female literacy and involvement in forestry, land conservation, and natural resources. WOWnet is a nationwide program that is dynamic, fun, informative, and strives to bring topical, accessible, and current forestry information to woman woodland owners and forest practitioners. We support women in forest leadership, women who manage their own woodlands, and all who facilitate the stewardship of forests. Through educational resources and personal stories we strive to instill a sense of confidence and empowerment in women’s abilities to meet the challenges of forest ownership. For more information on the National Women Owning Woodlands Network visit their website: http://www.womenowningwoodlands.net/

 

Upcoming Events:

Rain Catchment with Liz Crain

Saturday, September, 2018 from 10 am – 2 pm at Leafhopper Farm in Duvall

Ever wonder how so much rain in winter can be utilized when you need it on a hot summers day still months away? Well, at Leafhopper Farm, we’re implementing several strategies to collect the winter rain for summer drought resiliency. Come see rain barrels, cistern, and plans for a 20,000 gallon pillow tank. What are we doing with all that water? Come as see!

Please bring your own lunch and dress for the weather! RSVP to Kelsey Ketcheson at kelsey.ketcheson@wsu.edu

Fall Harvest of Wild Edibles

Saturday, October 13, 2018 at Leafhopper Farm in Duvall

Fall is harvest time, but why? Let’s take a look at what mother nature is putting in her larders for the coming winter and enjoy some wild and domestic feasting at Leafhopper Farm.

Please bring your own lunch and dress for the weather! RSVP to Kelsey Ketcheson at kelsey.ketcheson@wsu.edu

Transplanting and Re-rooting

Saturday, November 17, 2018 from 10 am – 2 pm at Leafhopper Farm in Duvall

Late fall is great weather for transplanting and re-rooting cuttings- why? Dormant trees and shrubs are less vulnerable to transition, and the soil will be wet for the job (unless it’s freezing), but we can plan for that in this tutorial of transplanting and re-rooting. We’ll focus on local varieties of plants that help increase understory density or set a hedge along a desired border.

Please bring your own lunch and dress for the weather! RSVP to Kelsey Ketcheson at kelsey.ketcheson@wsu.edu
