You heard it here first!
The Youth Farm Safety Project and the Women’s Agricultural Network are collaborating on an overnight safety camp for young women (14-19) and their female farming mentors.
We’ll be gathering at Spring Brook Farm in Reading, Vermont the first weekend in May for two days of hands-on workshops taught by farmers and safety professionals.
Workshops will include tractor and machinery safety, livestock safety, farm first aid, farm fire safety, woodlot safety, working safely outdoors, ergonomics, self-defense, and a movie to boot!
The program fee is $40 per participant. This includes lodging, four meals, and all workshops.
Got questions? Call Kristen Mullins at (802) 656-2034 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We recommend registering early as we are limited to 20 participants.
Thank you and hope to see you in May!
