EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Rural Center is hosting a “Women in Farming’ workshop geared for women interested in sustainable farming and food production.

The all-day event begins at 9 a.m. on July 11 at the Flint Hills Technical College in Emporia.

It includes a presentation on the importance of building soil health and the value of cover crops. One session deals with livestock and grazing management practices. Another session covers specialty crop production.

Also on the agenda is a farm tour at Gail Fuller’s farm near Emporia where there will be a presentation on carbon farming. The farm recently adopted a no-till cover crop system, crop rotations and small livestock enterprises.

Closing out the day is a native prairie and grass tour.

The $15 fee covers lunch and workshop materials.
