Open to all women involved in agriculture in New York, AFT invites you to join us for a peer-to-peer Learning Circle and Farm Tour this August. Our focus is Conservation in Action. Attendees will meet at an immersive photograph exhibit featuring western New York female farmers. We will hear about how conservation is put into action from a certified crop consultant who specializes in on-farm conservation planning. Then we will board a bus and head over to an award-winning family-run dairy, Table Rock Farm, that is at the forefront of agricultural innovation, to see it all in person. Meghan Hauser, a co-owner of the farm, will lead us through the efforts she and her team have implemented to make their 100+ year old farm an environmentally and economically thriving operation. After the tour, we will reflect on the experience and discuss action steps we can take to achieve our own conservation goals.

We're partnering with local agricultural resource providers to offer this peer-to-peer learning opportunity for women in New York to address the barriers to conservation and other obstacles faced by women in agriculture. By participating, you will:

  • Engage with women at the forefront of agricultural conservation.
  • Visit an award-winning dairy operation and see conservation in action.
  • Learn about the steps you can take to implement good farming practices on your land.
  • Meet key agricultural resource providers in your community who can connect you to financial and technical resources and information for your farm.
  • Network with other women in agriculture in your region.
  • Share openly about the challenges you are facing so that our service providers can design future opportunities for education and support.

We will outline action-focused conservation steps and will be joined by Meghan Hauser, who will provide our group with her real-farm perspective. In the virtual meeting, we will have the opportunity to informally interact with one another and reflect on goal-setting and personal learning experiences.
