Women Farmers-Soil Sisters

One thing that I (Jen) have come to appreciate about our community here in South Central Wisconsin are the passionate, creative and motivated women who are making this area better in so many ways!  I am attaching a two links for events that I am going to take part in.  These are organized by and focused on women farmers.

Many of the "soil sisters" are friends of mine and I am proud to be a part of this community of women through the "Green County Women in Sustainable Agriculture" group. I will be helping out at the Sugar River Emu Farm.  I was not ready to be on the tour this year due to having a newborn.

Please join in and celebrate local agriculture on August 5 by visiting small family farms as part of a tour led by Wisconsin women committed to a healthy, fresh future for our children.

One more organization doing great things for women in agriculture is the Women, Food and Agriculture Network (WFAN). There are hosting events through their Women Caring for the Land program.

Join in, learn and celebrate women farmers.
