KRC Women in Farming Risk Management Education Workshop #1
March 14 @ 9:00 am – 3:30 pm | $15
Registration is open for the first in a series of four “women only” Women in Farming Risk Management Education workshops to be hosted by the Kansas Rural Center during the spring and summer of 2015. All four of the workshops in KRC’s “Women in Farming” series will highlight the opportunities and the challenges women face as they implement new enterprises on existing farms, begin farming or take over family operations, or just try to adopt new practices and enterprises with their families.
The first workshop will take place on Saturday, March 14, 2015, from 9 am to 3:30 pm, in Lawrence, Kansas. It will focus on specialty crop production with a particular emphasis on the unique opportunities and challenges for women farmers. The morning portion of the workshop will be held at the Dreher Building, Douglas County Fairgrounds, 2110 Harper Street, Lawrence, Kansas, 66046. An afternoon farm tour will be held at the women-owned Red Tractor Farm, south of Lawrence. Cost to attend the workshop is $15, which covers a catered lunch, snacks and materials. Register here.
