Learning Circles on Labor Management Topics

In 2024, we will continue to offer women-centered “Learning Circles” that celebrate a peer-based learning model that works exceptionally well with women farmers, bringing together small groups to share and learn from each other.  Refreshingly different from typical webinar lecture formats, these well-received participatory sessions draw on discussion and shared learning and support between each other.
