My guest for this episode is Ann Stone, an education program associate with Penn State University who coordinates the Pennsylvania Women’s Agriculture Network, an organization dedicated to connecting women farmers of all experience levels for networking and education opportunities.
During this interview Ann and I discuss what this program is, how it came to be, what the ongoing efforts are to improve and expand the offerings, and what you can do to try and create a similar organization in your area. This program, and others like it, is another example of how we can come together to network and coordinate our efforts.
Coming up next next week, on August 13th, is Paul Garrett speaking about Environmental Education and Outreach. After that is Nicole Foss, and we talk about the next two potential crises: economic and energy contraction. Rounding out August is Dr. Laura Jackson, with a detailed conversation about mono-crop agriculture and restoration ecology. And Keith Johnson gets us started for the month of September.
