Amplifying Indigenous Women’s Perspectives for Healthy Soil and Water

Saturday, April 13, 10:00-3:00 pm

20850 Oatlands Plantation Lane
Leesburg, Virginia 20175

Join for a day at Oatlands to support healthy soils and water by bringing our circles together and amplifying Indigenous perspectives. We will hear from three Indigenous women leaders, Dr. Lyla June Johnston, Rene’ Locklear White, and Victoria Persinger Ferguson, who will share about Indigenous land management and foodways that support soil and water health. Each speaker will present their work and then they will engage in dialogue with one another and the audience, in a cross cultural exploration. Family friendly activities and networking will follow with educational and resource booths on soil and water stewardship available to explore.
