CFAES is co-sponsoring (with Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau) the upcoming Grow by FarmHer event on Friday, February 23, at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center. Of note, Dean Kress will provide the welcome remarks. Please share this information with your department – the target demographic is 16-22 but all are welcome to provide opportunities for networking.
FarmHer was founded in 2013 to change the image of agriculture by including women in that image through photographs and stories. Today, FarmHer has grown into much more than images that are changing the way people perceive a farmer, including a national TV show, targeted events and an online community, all designed just for women in agriculture.
Grow by FarmHer is a series of events to inspire, educate and empower young women in agriculture to take an active role in leading the industry. Through Grow by FarmHer, these young women will experience empowering and educational speakers, be introduced to skills needed to be successful leaders and receive the encouragement and inspiration they need to grow as young women in the agriculture industry. This unique event is an investment in the future of agriculture, as these young women will become tomorrow’s producers, business owners, and industry leaders.
