Women in Ag Gathering
We cordially invite you to join us at the 2nd annual 2019 Virginia Women in Agriculture Gathering! This year we are kicking off with farm tours from 9:30-5:00 (9:00 registration) on Friday, March 22nd and ending with a full day of conference speakers and networking on Saturday, March 23rd from 9:30-3:00 (8:30 registration) at the Goochland Agriculture Center at Central High School (2748 Dogtown Road, Goochland 23063). This event will equip female farmers, landowners, and agriculture enthusiasts with opportunities to network with peers, hone technical skills, and discuss solutions to the unique challenges they face. This year’s conference will also have a special emphasis on finances on the farm, online, and everywhere else—women in agriculture play a key role in shaping the voice and face of the industry as it reaches consumers. Speakers will be industry leaders from across the region. We have expanded the conference to include a second day! Friday will include tours of two different farms- one that focuses on agritourism and one that focuses on a wide variety of livestock and crop production with a focus on conservation. Saturday will be a full day with speakers on agriculture finance, bees, goat/sheep production, marketing, value added products, and more! REGISTRATION Please register here: https://tinyurl.com/womeninag2019 • Cost: $35 for the Saturday conference OR $65 for Friday’s pre-gathering tours plus the Saturday conference. (There is a $50 fee for returned checks.) • Deadline: March 15th For questions or more information, contact Rachel Grosse Henley (804-598-5640, rgrosse@vt.edu), Laura Siegle (804-313-5396, laurab08@vt.edu), or Sarah Sharpe (434-985-5236, seweaver@vt.edu).
