PA-WAgN One-Day Networking Symposium

Posted: August 12, 2014

The Pennsylvania Women’s Agricultural Network is working diligently to deliver another successful One-Day Networking Symposium – Women Farmers: Heroes of Our Communities, slated for December 8, 2014, at the Penn Stater Conference Center, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

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, networking, and peer-to-peer information sharing.
