The 15th Annual Fall Harvest Gathering for
Women in Sustainable Agriculture
November 7-9, 2014
Cedar Valley Resort, Whalan, MN
Get to know other women who care passionately about farming and the earth!
Some of us farm and some of us want to farm but we all enjoy sharing and learning from each other
at the annual Fall Harvest Gathering for Women in Sustainable Agriculture. Join us for our 15th
gathering and connect with kindred spirits in a beautiful setting right on the Root River! All
women are welcome.
Highlights will include:
· Three (!) virtual farm tours
· Lively discussion on soil health: what to look for, and how to keep it!
· Panel discussion on passing on the farm
· Excellent potluck lunch Saturday (and great food throughout the weekend!)
· Music, campfire, silent auction
· Time to walk (or bike) the Root River trail
· Time to talk casually with women who share your passion!
Cost: $120 before Nov. 1, $135 after and walk-ins. Fee includes lodging and some meals*. Saturday-only
fee $80. In order to keep costs down, we share rooms during the weekend. We may also be able to offer
a discount if you are willing to share a queen size bed. Scholarships are also available. Please let us
know if you would like to come and need some help!
Registration Friday evening, 5-7 p.m. Casual Friday supper and late-night snacks provided. Please bring
something for the Saturday potluck lunch and something to contribute to the silent auction. The silent
auction helps fund the following year’s gathering and scholarships. If you would like please bring a song
or poem or something to share around the campfire Saturday evening.
*Food is an integral part of our gathering and we ask everyone to contribute by bringing something to
share for our potluck lunch on Saturday. Some light snacks and chili for Friday night, breakfast offerings,
and Saturday’s soup supper is included.
