The Washington State University Mount Vernon Research Center, 16650 State Route 536 in Mount Vernon, is one of 16 locations statewide that will host the Feb. 11 Women in Agriculture conference. The event will provide educational resources to women farmers.
Two main speakers, Lyn Garling of Over the Moon Farm and author Rita Emmett, will be broadcast to all conference locations. Local speakers will also offer advice on how to improve farm and financial management, as well as how to keep current on market trends and the latest production methods
“We are really harnessing technology this year to reach out to all women farmers in our state and share good, practical information with them, as well as an opportunity to network locally,” said conference coordinator Margaret Viebrock, in a press release.
While the conference is geared toward women, it is open to all producers including supporting spouses and aspiring farmers, as well as agriculture students and farm interns.
