Women, Land and Legacy (WLL) is an outreach project in Iowa that brings women who are interested in agriculture and natural resources together at the local level to converse, listen and become empowered for involvement on their landscape and in their communities. Linn County is the newest county to become part of this statewide effort, which is active in nearly 30 counties. WLL is sponsored by a partnership of USDA, state, and local agencies along with other local organizations, businesses, and local agricultural women.
