In Her Boots: Sustainable Farming For Women, By Women

 

The In Her Boots format encourages women farmers to learn from each other by sharing their ideas and experiences. These day-long, on-farm workshops include a formal education session, a detailed farm tour, lunch and networking opportunities. Women just starting on their farm or food business journey are especially encouraged to attend.

Each Boots workshop covers different topics; plan to attend more than one!

 

“The In Her Boots workshop did so much for me.
It was the first female farming training I’d ever heard of.”

Frequently asked questions

 

Reviews:

“All walks of life and all levels of experience were represented and embraced. It also was a great combination of classroom-style learning and hands-on workshop.”

“I came away from the workshop more confident in my farming abilities, more sure of my farm dreams being realized, and more connected with like-minded women, including mentors that I’ve been able to reach out to on on an ad hoc basis for the last 2 years now. I am now settled in on my farm and beginning to put into practice some of the important lessons I learned. I’m in my own boots now, in part because of In Her Boots.”
