Finding the house: White house with black trim and a huge spruce tree out front, near the top of the hill.
Parking is available on one side of the street. Please do not park in the driveway. Please do not park on Myrtle Ave within 20 feet of    the corner it shares with Congress St. Be sure to lock all car doors.
Bring: This event includes a potluck dinner, so bring a dish, your own silver/dishware, and BYOB! No pets please. Bring an extra chair if you have it.
Cost: Free!

This will be a relaxed, supportive gathering to connect and celebrate women in agriculture. This is not a workshop or a class format but a sharing and celebration format.

We will have informal group discussions using open space (group decides together) format to choose discussion topics. Could be practical topics or topics such as “what does it mean to be a female farmer in the current political climate?” “managing family and farm,” “food equality,” “favorite recipes” “feminism & farming.” The group decides which subgroups to create and what to talk about.
