Register Now for the Young Women and Their Mentors Farm Safety Camp

Hands-on Farm Education for Young Women & Their Female Farming Mentors May 4 & 5

Build skills and confidence handling livestock and working with tractors and machinery at the upcoming “Farm Safety Camp for Young Women (14-19) and Their Female Farming Mentors.” Co-sponsored by the UVM Extension Youth Farm Safety Project and the Women’s Agricultural Network, the two-day camp will provide a fun and supportive learning environment for participants of all ages and backgrounds. Participants will learn current best practices for avoiding farm injuries and accidents, and how to respond to emergencies should they arise.

The program fee is just $40 (including lodging and meals at Spring Hill Farm in Reading, VT) and financial aid is available to help defray other costs — such as travel, childcare and replacement labor– that adult farmers may incur to attend. The registration deadline is Wednesday, April 23. Read more about the camp or contact Kristen Mullins at 802-656-2034 with questions.
