Women and the Need for Community

Women represent the fastest-growing segment in agriculture today. Women's active role in farming has tripled in the last three decades. Even so, there's a loneliness that often accompanies women who choose this career. They need community, a place where they can share new ideas, celebrate victories, address challenges, and cultivate relationships with like-minded women.
