Ag Ed at a Distance

Ag Ed at a Distance

The Women in Ag Learning Network will be holding a virtual conference featuring information, tips, and tools that ag educators and service providers can use to deliver more engaging and effective programs for beginning women farmers and ranchers. The conference will be held from January 29 to 31, from 7:00 to 11:00 a.m. each day Hawai‘i Time (noon to 4 p.m. Eastern Time). The sessions will be organized around five core themes: business scale and profitability; evaluating programs; leadership; legal issues; and safety, mechanization, and ergonomics. The conference will cover a broad range of topics relevant to agricultural educators and service providers from across the country. People who work for Extension, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and agribusiness will find it helpful to attend. Farmers and ranchers who offer farmer-training programs will also find sessions relevant to their programs. Participants can join from their computer, tablet, or smartphone, and all sessions will be recorded for later viewing if necessary. The cost is $35 for registrations received by December 19 and $50 thereafter. The fee includes access to all sessions, plus downloads of supplemental resources and material. If you have any questions, contact Beth Holtzman at beth.holtzman@uvm.edu or 802-476-2003.
