WOMEN FARMERS: HEROES OF OUR COMMUNITIES

We are pleased to announce that 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 service 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.” 

Christine will also 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.

The one-day symposium features a full day of workshops including Creative Effective Displays; Using Herbs to Add Value to Your Farm; Sustainable Farming With Draft Horses; Holistic Goals to Meet the Triple Bottom Line; Techniques for Networking for Small Farms, Ecosystem Gardening for Edible Crops; Let's Talk Alpacas: Fiber and On-Farm Education and many more.
