What’s the key ingredient to healthy communities? Women leading food system change. Women make up one of the fastest growing segments of new farmers today and we come from a long and deep history and tradition of cultivating the soil. This fresh crop of women farmers today find innovative ways to champion local agriculture and foster greater collaboration and cooperation, all based on an intentional intersectionality: we are all connected. Collectively, women “connect the dots” and improve the health of our environment, stimulate the economy, build a greater sense of community, and nurture a more vibrant food system. What does our future hold? How can we support more women cultivating these connections? Come celebrate the historic roots and inspiring stories of women farmers today — and in the future.
