Christine Anthony will share her personal journey in the local foods movement as she delivers the keynote address "From Locavore To Farmer Advocate: Shining A Light On The Next Generation Of Women Farmers."
Internationally renowned documentary filmmakers Christine Anthony and Owen Masterson will present their award winning film, Terra Firma! "Terra Firma is not another 'messed up vets' movie. It is a sensitive, intimate look at three women who joined the serviced in the mid-90s in order to improve their lives, ended up as support soldiers in a battle zone, returned home with PTSD, and eventually found healing through farming."
Breakout sessions feature workshops and panel discussions to increase your knowledge on a variety of topics including marketing, business planning and holistic financial management, farm labor management and farm-family relationship building, personal well-being, production agriculture, and much, much more. PA-WAgN 2015 Specialty Mentors will also present in their respective topic areas of Livestock Production, Value-Added Agriculture & On-Farm Education, Urban Agriculture and Food Access, and Small Fruits & Vegetable Production.
