Women are the backbone of the development of rural and national economies.
They comprise 43 percent of the world’s agricultural labor force, which rises to 70 percent in some countries.
Hannah Breckbill will share her work with regenerative agriculture, land justice, co-operative economics and the diversity that Northeast Iowa landscape can contain. Breckbill and her partner own and operate Humble Hands Harvest and will provide a vision of what tomorrow will bring for their business and opportunities for Women in agriculture.
Hosted by Women Empowered, Inc., the presentation is at Lingonberry at 218 W. Water St., Monday, April 15, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Women Empowered will continue to provide resources for women of all ages, to inspire every woman in realizing her dreams by bringing awareness to her self-worth and value as a confident, strong woman, according to event organizers.
