Our individual stories are part of a much larger narrative, one that cannot be told without a network. Online social networks are extremely powerful for telling stories and maintaining relationships, but deep personal connections still usually have an in-person component.
One of the many ways women lead the creation of an ecologically and socially just food system is by supporting and mentoring each other. We want to create an Instagram story quilt featuring women leading change in the food system this way, but we can’t tell this story without your help.
Show us your picture of women having fun learning and building a healthy community food system together. Show a picture and tell us about the women who have supported you, mentored you, or made a difference in your life.
Submit a photo of you giving or receiving support or mentorship alongside a woman in your personal network. We will select 24 photos to feature in our story quilt on our Instagram account. Selected participants will receive a $15 discount off conference registration. Deadline to submit is August 31!
