Women in Agriculture Discussion Group: Apples and Vegetables

September 30, 2019

Women in Agriculture Discussion Group: Apples and Vegetables

CCE Erie County and the Cornell Vegetable Program are partnering to facilitate a monthly women's discussion group on weekday evenings during the 2019 field season!

Each meeting will feature an established, innovative Farm-her leading the group on a tour of her operation and sharing her expertise on business management and production. Several guest speakers, as well as CVP staff, will be brought in to act as resource people for developing solutions to common production challenges.

The goal of the discussion group is to create a strong, professional resource network among farming women in western NY and to celebrate and recognize leading women growers. Thanks to a grant from Farm Credit East's Northeast AgEnhancement program, participation is free and will include scouting materials and factsheets.

The selected crop themes are centered around horticultural production, with an emphasis on vegetables. Each meeting will include a snack break and time to explore topics of interest to the group. This group is open to anyone professionally farming, including employees, and FFA/4-H youth age 16 & up who plan a career in horticulture.

The September 30 meeting will cover season extension, managing CSAs and tarping led by Liz Tee, CCE Lake Ontario Fruit Program, and Elizabeth Buck, CCE Cornell Vegetable Program. The meeting will be hosted by Bree Bacon (McCollum Orchards & Gardens). Bree will share her experience in social media marketing and passive farm income.
