Farm Education for Young Women & Their Female Farming
Mentors May 4 & 5
Build skills and confidence handling livestock and working
with tractors and machinery at the upcoming "Farm Safety Camp
for Young Women (14-19) and Their Female Farming Mentors."
Co-sponsored by the UVM Extension Youth Farm Safety Project and
the Women’s Agricultural
Network, the two-day camp will provide a fun and
supportive learning environment for participants of all ages and
backgrounds. Participants will learn current best practices for
avoiding farm injuries and accidents, and how to respond to
emergencies should they arise. The program fee is just $40
(including lodging and meals at Spring Hill Farm in Reading, VT)
and financial aid is available to help defray other costs --
such as travel, childcare and replacement labor-- that adult
farmers may incur to attend. The registration deadline is
Wednesday, April 23. Read more about the camp or contact Kristen
Mullins at 802-656-2034 with questions.
