Every few years, a regional women’s network takes the lead in planning a national conference for women in sustainable agriculture (WISA).

More than 400 people from across the U.S. attend, including a few dozen men. The speakers are women, the food is organic, and the atmosphere is energetic! Participants spend two days learning and sharing information about their communities, farms, and projects.

The sixth national Women in Sustainable Agriculture conference takes place from Oct. 17-19, 2019, in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota! For more information, visit the host organization website.
