Grow by FarmHer coming to Columbus Feb. 23

The excitement of the Grow by FarmHer events continues into year three,
covering new states on the East Coast including an event at Ohio State University Friday, Feb. 23.

The Grow by FarmHer events are designed to inspire, encourage and educate young women, ages 16 to 22, with a goal of helping them pursue their passion for agriculture through their future careers. A limited number of tickets are now available for each event at a cost of $35 per individual and $30 per person in a group of four or more. Event flyer

Whether Grow participants are looking to expand their interests in agriculture, continue their education in the many diverse ag-related majors, or are wondering what their future career opportunities might be, this event is a great way to connect with mentors and the women who are leading the industry.

“Our goal with the Grow series of events is to show young women that they can do anything they set their mind to,” said Marji Guyler-Alainz, president and founder of FarmHer. “Through FarmHer we live the motto, if you can see if, you can go be it, and that is exactly what Grow will show these women who will play a significant role in the future of agriculture. By bringing together today’s successful women in the industry with the next generation of leaders, we aim to help these young women ‘Grow’ as a FarmHer.”

A lineup of dynamic speakers, who are FarmHers themselves, will appear at each event during the Grow by FarmHer series of events. The speakers include Cristen Clark, a food blogger at ‘Food and Swine’ and pig farmer as well as Marleen Eick, co-owner of media company, Herdmark Media and life coach. Marji Guyler-Alaniz will talk about the purpose and mission of FarmHer. Other powerful women in agriculture will join the event while participating on the panel discussion and as a mentor during lunch.
