Good News Comes in Threes:
Announcing the Sustainability Sisterhood, Nina Wins Scholarship to Women Managing the Farm Conference & The Sisterhood's Inaugural Gathering!
We are ecstatic to announce that our very own Director of Farm Operations has been awarded a scholarship to attend the upcoming Women Managing the Farm Conference!
Meaningful conversations between women farmers, rural business leaders and landowners have been a goal of the Women Managing the Farm Conference since the event began in 2005, and the 2023 meeting is no exception. The conference will be held February 15-17 in Manhattan. From ag advocacy at large and small scales to the impact of military aggression on global food security to mental health, the 2023 Women Managing the Conference offers women the chance to explore how to grow their operations, their communities and themselves.
This annual conference provides a supportive setting in which women can develop the skills, resources and knowledge needed for success in a competitive agricultural environment. Conference sessions are designed to keep women up to date on the latest advancements in agriculture and thriving within their rural communities.
