2024 Peer Learning Circles for woman-identifying farmers

March 26 - March 28

You’re invited to participate in a unique, virtual collaborative learning environment for woman-identifying farmers to connect and share challenges and opportunities at this crucial stage in farm growth. These women-centered “Learning Circles” are based on a peer-based learning model that brings together small groups to share and learn from each other. Refreshingly different from typical webinar lecture formats, these participatory sessions provide space for farmers lively discussion, support, and to learn from each other’s successes and challenges.

  • Are you a woman farmer new to managing employees on your farm? 
  • Maybe you are thinking about expanding and hiring staff for the first time next season?
  • Or perhaps you have hired staff for years and are looking for fresh ideas for managing your team?
  • Are you looking for a safe place to process your last season, what you learned and what you’ll do differently managing staff this next season?

2024 Learning Circle Topics

  • Communication & Expectations:  How to create a flourishing farm culture & employer-employee relationships
  • Training & Delegation: How to give direction and feedback
  • Productive Conflict: How to mediate difficult conversations across gender, family and cultural differences

Sign up for which month works best with your schedule and plan to attend all three. Space is limited to keep the groups small and interactive. All sessions will be held via Zoom from 12-1:15 EST.
