Events

The In Her Boots format encourages women farmers to learn from each other. In this pandemic year, we moved our In Her Boots events online as webinars and built on them through our In Her Boots Podcast, a weekly enews, and our Facebook group. Listen to the podcast episodes and check out the enews for tips to help you build capacity to manage the many curveballs of farming.
