Join PA-WAgN for an upcoming farminar (webinar) to imagine solutions and coordinate action to address the challenges that we face now and will face in the future.

In this challenging time we remember that access to fresh healthy, food is a right and not a privilege.  Now more than ever, many may be struggling with social isolation and access to basic resources.  As Anu Rangarajan from the Cornell Small Farms program notes in her recent blog post, "Never before has our work as farmers and stewards been so important."  In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and directives, it can be both confusing and challenging to do what is best for you, your business, your organization, and your community.  We invite you to join us for a discussion-based farminar (webinar)  Strengthening Our Food System Together in a Time of Crisis on Friday, March 27th from 12noon-1:30pm.  This farminar will center women's and gender oppressed voices and welcomes all sectors of the food system.  Bring your concerns, thoughts, ideas, and thinking caps as we commune together to imagine solutions and coordinate action to address the challenges that we face now and will face in the future. Advanced registration is requested so be sure to REGISTER HERE.

We know many of you are home with children so feel free to have them join you as participants, observers, or just in the background. If you need to take a break for a minute, or thirty, or more that is welcomed.  We understand how challenging farm and food work with a family can be and we are here to provide space for you to participate in whatever capacity that you can.
