Registration is OPEN for the 8th Annual Women in Agriculture Conference. 
Join us for inspiration, knowledge and networking Saturday, January 25, 2020 

“HEALTHY FARMS” is the theme for the eighth annual Women in Agriculture Conference. Experience an engaging, interactive day full of inspiration, learning and networking with other women farmers. This is a one-day event held simultaneously at sites throughout Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana and Washington.
The day begins with learning how to cultivate your personal resiliency to handle all the “ups and downs” as a woman farmer.
The day also includes a panel of local women farmers. They will talk about the different ways they balance their lives and how they celebrate the job of doing what they love the most!
The final take-away message with the cap note speaker will be all about mindfulness. We will learn how to “use our minds to change our brains” for the good.
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact. It will be a full day of learning and networking!
Visit the website for more information: www.WomenInAg.wsu.edu or contact one of us at WSU Extension. We hope to see you at this year’s conference!
