Protect & Preserve Your Most Important Tool: You! – Mini Virtual Retreat for Women Farmers on Body Mechanics

April 9 - April 11

Register here!

Spring is the perfect opportunity before the busy season starts to step back, reflect and learn how to better care for our physical and mental health.  Join this unique, virtual series for woman-identifying farmers to connect and learn together on key elements of body mechanics. Back by popular demand — the pilot for this series sold out in 2023.

This peer learning series will start with three back-to-back daily 90-minute sessions in April. Led by and for women farmers, these sessions serve up a combination of practical information, movement and connection with other women sharing similar experiences.

Key Topics

  • Building flexibility & strength
  • Understanding muscles & joints
  • Preventing & managing injury
  • Dealing with chronic pain & conditions
  • Cultivating rest & recovery

This series takes a proactive and positive approach to aging:  We’re all on the journey of getting older, whatever age we may be at now.  Let’s celebrate the bodies and abilities we have and learn together how to best care for ourselves to keep our hands in the soil for as long as we choose.

Attendees will identify benchmarks and develop a personal action plan to best prepare and protect that most important tool — ourselves! — for the next growing season and beyond.  Everyone will also have the opportunity to connect with women sharing similar experiences, from farming while pregnant to self care during menopause or managing chronic illness.

All women-identifying farmers are welcome, wherever you are on your agriculture journey.
