Every year at PA-WAgN’s annual symposium, we honor women and organizations that exemplify PA-WAgN’s mission to support women in agriculture. The Wagoner Award honors an individual who drives PA-WAgN forward through their work, and the Bolster Award honors an individual, organization, or business that has helped bring a wider recognition of the importance of women as farmers and as growers to their communities, governments, and the agricultural industry. PA-WAgN’s annual symposium is around the corner and we are looking to our membership: farmers, gardeners, food advocates, and supporters of women in agriculture, for award nominations. Nominations will be open until the end of October!
