WFAN’s mission is to engage women in building an ecological and just food and agricultural system through individual and community power. Our members work every day to fulfill a vision for a food system that supports farmers, eaters, and the environment.
This two-day annual conference is our opportunity to learn from our diverse peers, build a stronger network, and foster connections for long-lasting change. The conference will feature women in our network through regional field tours; day-long intensives; a farm-to-table dinner; art + story gallery featuring work by women farmers; creative community building; and workshops.
