Soil Sisters: Toolkit to Empower Women Farmers


Workshop audio recording from the 2016 MOSES Organic Farming Conference.


Lisa Kivirist
Friday 3

Based on Lisa Kivirist’s new book, this session covers topics such as ergonomics, launching farms mid-life, grants and loans for women, and farming with kids. We’ll explore farming through a gender lens, providing a blueprint of practical advice for female farmers.

Lisa Kivirist leads the MOSES Rural Women’s Project, supporting women farmers and food entrepreneurs through education, resources and connections. She has written a number of books about food and farming with her husband, John Ivanko. Soil Sisters was just published this winter.
