• A Takeaway from 'I am FarmHer'

July 07, 2017 4 Comments

Last week, over 150 women in agriculture gathered in Des Moines, Iowa for the inaugural I am FarmHer event. With 21 states represented and ages ranging from 17 to 79, the communication and collaboration between attendees made a lasting impression for everyone involved. 

Thanks to generous donors, Bob and Brenda Haney, Emily Roush of Kansas received our first annual Brenda G. Haney Scholarship. The scholarship covered Emily's registration for the event and funds to pursue her entrepreneurial dreams. While Bob was presenting the award, he shared what FarmHer meant to him and we wanted to share it all of you. Enjoy!

I am FarmHer is an event that offers women in agriculture the opportunity to connect, collaborate, and communicate. Details about the 2018 I am FarmHer event will be announced in August. To get the latest FarmHer news to your inbox, sign up here

Congratulations to Emily on the scholarship and to everyone that attended the 2017 FarmHer conference. Although I wasn’t able to make it this year, I plan on being there in 2018 for sure. What a great organization FarmHer is. Reading the stories and watching the show has provided me with a lot of inspiration and helped me step toward realizing my dream of bringing Nola Farms to life. Please everyone keep sharing, it’s powerful for all of us. Thank you.
