Women Farmers Anthropological Research Presentation – In Eugene

May 16 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Anthropological Research Presentation – Women Farmers in Oregon. An evening about women farmers in Oregon – for women farmers in Oregon!

Please note: This same presentation will be held in Corvallis on May 22nd (https://www.facebook.com/events/651486705303096/?active_tab=about). The information will be the same at both locations, the hope is to make the event more accessible for more women farmers in our region by offering it twice.

Thursday May 16th 5:30pm-8:00pm. Potluck and Presentation
Lane County Extension Office
996 Jefferson St, Eugene, OR 97402

The event is free to attend, but please RSVP to Teagan.moran@oregonstate.edu as space is limited.

This evening event will include a potluck and anthropological research presentation on the concerns and experiences of women farmers connected to the Willamette Women’s Farm Network. An opportunity to participate in community engaged research!

Oregon State University’s master’s student Rosa Michaels has been working with women farmers connected to the Willamette Women Farmer’s Network over the past year. Her research project initially raised questions regarding gender, land access, and soil health/microbiology. Some other interesting themes arose from the research surrounding knowledge networks and farmer support programs and organizations.

This presentation is first an attempt to share preliminary findings back to the community, but most importantly to create space for dialogue about those findings, and what the community would like to do with final results of the research (for example provide the research results to farmer support programs/organizations so they can potentially better serve the community).

Please join us for the presentation, conversation, and a guaranteed delicious potluck (thank you for bringing a dish). The event is free to attend, but please RSVP to Teagan.moran@oregonstate.edu
