Pollinate event promotes inclusivity in ag

Several conservation districts throughout Michigan are inviting farmwomen and others to break down barriers to conservation adoption.

Agriculture specialist Casey Carpenter tells Brownfield primarily husbands enroll in conservation programs on behalf of farms and it can be an intimidating process for others.

“I want the women in the farm family to feel empowered when they walk into the office,” they say.

Carpenter helped develop the Pollinate Conference last year to better support women farmers and increase inclusivity outreach.
