Second lecture in the series Landscapes, Real and Imagined
Women have always worked the land and shaped the landscape of agriculture from its earliest beginnings. Today, women bring different values and experiences to farming and to the land, while reflecting the broader social culture. In this talk, Tatiana Abatemarco will share findings from her study of women organic farmers in Vermont. She will explore the successes and challenges of local food farmers who are working toward social, environmental, and economic sustainability.
