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.
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.
