In 2012, inspired by the well-tested approach pioneered by the Women, Food, and Ag Network in the Midwest, AFT began hosting learning circles for women landowners in targeted farming communities in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic. These women-only learning circles are designed to break down gender gaps and expand women landowners’ knowledge and confidence related to conservation.

Ever since, demand for AFT to host learning circles in other parts of the country has grown, leading us to plan events in Connecticut, Illinois, Ohio, California, New York, Maryland, and Virginia. Check our calendar to learn about the latest opportunities to join us at an upcoming learning circle.
