Plate to Politics Releases Audio Leadership Training Program
Learn directly from women serving in leadership in USDA, as soil and water district commissioners and city council members in our audio leadership training program. We've interview women from North Carolina to Oklahoma and more. There's no one better to teach you how to run for office then an elected woman.
Based on feedback from past attendees and women we’ve met through our Plate to Politics presentations, we know that there are not enough accessible leadership resources specific to women in sustainable agriculture and healthy food. While we’d love to do a training in every place where women in this movement exist, we are working to bridge the gap through our audio leadership training program.
This audio leadership training program was made possible with support from Rachel’s Network.
Nominations open for Farm Service Agency County Committees!
The Farm Service Agency (FSA) County Committee (COC) nomination period began June 14th. COC is a critical part of FSA, and the fact that farmers help administer our programs makes FSA a unique agency. County committee men and women are unique to FSA and serve as a direct link between agricultural communities and USDA. Committees help deliver FSA farm programs at the local level, including producer appeals, making decisions impacting commodity price support, conservation and disaster programs, and outreach to their local communities.
