Some Iowans who farm will gather this Friday and Saturday in Storm Lake for the second annual “Women in Denim” conference. Buena Vista County Extension Director Rhonda Christenson says response is good. Christenson says the conference, aimed at women in agriculture, has grown since last year when about 225 people took part in the first one.
Christenson says women will find information in selling wine, marketing grain, using the Internet and using farmers markets to get their products into the hands of consumers. Thirty-five workshops Friday night and all day Saturday will give them help like farm financial information and leisure tips like traveling on a shoestrings, topics from agroterrorism and health advice on how to take care of yourself better. “Women in Denim” will be held in Storm Lake Friday and Saturday, on the campus of Buena Vista University.
