Women, Food and Ag Network                               

Women in Sustainable Ag Conference

Every few years, a regional women’s network takes the lead in planning a national conference for women in sustainable agriculture (WISA). More than 400 people from across the U.S. attend, including a few dozen men. The speakers are women, the food is organic, and the atmosphere is energetic! Participants spend two days learning and sharing information about their communities, farms, and projects.
