Wahine Farmer Empowerment Summer Series: Turning Challenges into Sustained Opportunities

Join us for a three-part webinar series featuring candid conversations with leading women farmers and entrepreneurs, sharing how they are turning COVID-19 challenges into sustained opportunities and creating multiple revenue streams for long-term stability. 

These webinars are focused for wahine producers in effort to develop the Hawai’i Women Farmers Network (WFN), established in 2017.

In addition to hearing from mentors and leaders in the farming community, we will also be joined by resource providers, market analysts, and those working to bolster local agriculture. This webinar series is a great opportunity to get up to speed on where consumer behavior and local demand are shifting, how other local farms and agribusinesses are transitioning, and some new public and private initiatives and resources that your farm can tap into.

It is our hope that these webinars foster conversations and resources that can support an informed and empowered network of women working at the frontlines to grow local ag during this next phase of the pandemic and towards greater statewide goals for Hawaii’s agriculture future.
