American Farmland Trust is excited to announce a series of 2020 Women for the Land Learning Circles across the nation!
In 2020, AFT will host Learning Circles in select regions within California, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington.
At Learning Circles, women in agriculture gather to hear from each other and agricultural resource providers in their local communities. To gain insight into the learning circle model, click here to listen to a few testimonials from women learning circle participants. Information is shared on practices and programs that support soil health, water quality, climate resilience, farm viability, and/or legacy planning. AFT will primarily host these gatherings online in the coming months to keep producers and landowners safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Some gatherings or portions of gatherings may be hosted in-person, as conditions allow.
