WARWICK, R.I. — The Rhode Island Women in Agriculture Conference will be held on March 10, 2020 from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, in Warwick RI.
The 2020 Rhode Island Women in Agriculture conference is an educational event designed to share the numerous opportunities available to women currently in farming and to women considering farming as a career. Our goal is to ensure that the next generation of women is educated, encouraged and empowered to take on the challenges of meeting the world’s growing food, fuel and fiber needs.
This conference will bring together farmers, educators, agricultural service providers, influential speakers and others to build production and business skills, share educational and organizational strategies and forge new connections all aimed at expanding the success of women in sustainable agriculture. The conference will not only provide a fabulous opportunity for networking with agricultural providers and producers in the tri-state area but will also feature THREE inspiring speakers. Come and hear from Rhode Island’s own Jayne Merner Senecal, ouvrier agricole at Earth Care Farm and Owner-Operator of Golden Root Gardening; Amberley Snyder, author of Walk, Ride, Rodeo, whose story was told in the Netflix movie of the same name; and self- described Sales and Marketing Nerd Casey Conrad. The day also includes hands-on learning sessions, instructional classes, informative workshops and grant & financing opportunities.
