Events

The In Her Boots format encourages women farmers to learn from each other. In this pandemic year, we’re moving our In Her Boots events online as webinars and building on them through our In Her Boots Podcast and Facebook group. Also, now through Labor Day, we’re producing a weekly “Resilience Boot Camp” enews filled with tips to help you build capacity to manage the many curveballs of farming.
