Southern University Ag Center teaches women in agriculture relevant farm skills with workshops and hands-on training. The Wisteria Alliance is a training series designed for women, and will be conducted primarily by women. “We want to create an environment where women on the farm or those interested in gardening, as well as others can come together to sharpen their skills,” says Dr. Dawn Mellion-Patin, program organizer. The celebration will kick-off on Tuesday, October 22 at the SU Ag Center, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The public is invited to join us for the Women in Ag fun!
Activities will include: a slide show of previous trainings, a taste fair of SU Ag Center products; a balloon launch; giveaways; and refreshments.
Participants in the training series will learn improved skills of managing livestock; growing container gardens; using power tools; landscaping; building fences and other topics by special request. The calendar of the training sessions will be shared at the kickoff celebration.
The event will be organized by Dawn Mellion-Patin, PhD, Extension Specialist and Zanetta Augustine, Extension Associate.
