WFAN is a community of women involved in sustainable agriculture. We are farmers, landowners, researchers, students, advocates and mothers concerned about our families’ health. We come from all over the US and several other countries, and do the majority of our work in the Midwest.
Women own nearly half the farmland in the US today, but are rarely represented on the boards of policy-making bodies and often encounter communications barriers when accessing information from agencies and institutions.
WFAN exists so that women can give each other the information, connections and encouragement they need to be effective practitioners and supporters of sustainable agriculture and healthy localized food systems.
To link and empower women to build food systems and communities that are healthy, just, sustainable, and that promote environmental integrity.
