What is New York Agri-Women? Come find out!


On March 22, 2013 the New York Agri-women of Suffolk County held a spring workshop called Women in the business of Long Island Agriculture.  The theme of the workshop was “Sharing Our Story.”  The event was attended by eighty women from all career backgrounds, including farmers, lawyers, doctors, bankers, politicians, mothers, daughters and people who were just interested in Long Island Agriculure.  It was an amazing event.


Over fifty attendees participated in the New York City Conference in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.  The conference was bookended with tours of Brooklyn Grange, Eagle Street and Anarchy in a Jar.  The conference included panels on food education, Community Supported Agriculture, and value-added food products.  Speakers presented on the New York State Agriculture Mediation Program, agriculture advocacy, importance of female involvement in New York agriculture, and Grow NYC's survey results on Greenmarket farmers.
