Women in Ag Conference

January 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

WSUExtensionLogo

Registration is OPEN
Join us for inspiration, knowledge and networking Saturday, January 25, 2020 for the 8th Annual Women in Agriculture Conference. 
 
 
“HEALTHY FARMS” is the theme for the eighth annual Women in Agriculture Conference. Experience an engaging, interactive day full of inspiration, learning and networking with other women farmers. This is a one-day event held simultaneously at sites throughout Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana and Washington.
The day begins with learning how to cultivate your personal resiliency to handle all the “ups and downs” as a woman farmer. It’s no secret that things can be tough for farmers, whether it is things we can control or issues we try to control when we can’t. The stress in farming has always existed, but the levels can soar during times of high costs and low returns. Positive psychology – using our personal strengths – to focus on intentional well-being and to thrive during every challenge and change is a skill you will practice and learn.
The day also includes a panel of local women farmers. They will talk about the different ways they balance their lives and how they celebrate the job of doing what they love the most! Participants will have the opportunity to meet farmers from their area, compare jobs, ask and answer questions and build a community network. It will be a full day of laughing, learning and networking!
The final take-away message with the cap note speaker will be all about mindfulness. We will learn how to “use our minds to change our brains” for the good. We all want to be calm, contented and centered. We will learn how to cultivate a mindful presence and seed positivity into each day. You will leave this conference with new friends, new ways to farm and new strengths to do what we love to do every day!
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact. It will be a full day of learning and networking!
Mark your calendar and join other women to learn, network and be ready to take action!
