This is a two-day class designed to educate and empower current or future female users of agricultural tractors and farm equipment.  It appeals to new and beginning women farmers, and has proven valuable to many seasoned professionals – some of whom were never formally schooled on tractors.  During the class, we will demystify tractors and improve understanding of how tractors are designed to work; how to operate them safely and effectively; and how to perform regular and basic maintenance tasks. 

The class covers a lot of material – in a classroom setting, on and around the tractor, and “in the workshop.”  While it would be very difficult to ensure full competency or mastery within two days, the attendees will leave with a much greater appreciation for safe tractor use and machinery care, along with new knowledge and resources they can apply to their own situations.

Because of the intense pace of the class, the volume of material covered, and the hands-on components, the class will be limited to twelve people. The farm site allows camping but will require prior approval from PA-WAgN.
