CommonGround is celebrating its sixth year of connecting urban and suburban women with farm women who wish to tell the story of agriculture. The program, supported with checkoff dollars from the National Corn Growers Association of and the United Soybean Board, began with 15 female farmer volunteers from five states. Now the program boasts nearly 200 farm women from 19 states, including two of your AgWired editors.
Despite the growth, the focus is still the same: finding ways to have conversations surrounding the job of growing food.
Direct family and friends to the Facebook page to ask their questions bout farming.
