Women farmers in Washington State will have the unique opportunity to participate in an agriculture workshop offering inspirational speakers, practical advice on how to improve management skills and networking opportunities with other women entrepreneurs. Keynote speaker Trini Campbell, owner of Riverdog Farm in Guinda, California, will share her experiences of beginning farming in the Napa Valley in 1990 by renting two acres and sharecropping and now owning a diverse 500-acre organic farm in the prime agriculture area. A second workshop will help producers become better financially prepared to take advantage of an opportunity to grow an operation and also survive a downturn in the economy.
