  • Start a Local Network Where You Are – WFAN
    food for our families Our founders recognized that women needed a network because they were often working in isolation geographically because they were often farming or working in rural areas and culturally because of their choice to work in alternative agriculture Our members also tell us over and over that they appreciate a women only network partly because agriculture in the US is still a highly gendered arena that favors men and because women work and process information differently from men The WFAN website serves as a portal for our virtual community of information and support for women all over the US around the issue of sustainable agriculture and healthy food systems But we know nothing replaces face to face interaction with peers That s why we hope to offer some support to those of you who may not live in the Midwest where we hold most of our events and don t have access to any of the other regional networks that continue to spring up around the country All it takes to create a network is communication and hospitality Here are some tips and ideas to help you hold a networking meeting Reach out to other women in your area who might be interested in creating your local network Even one other person can make a big difference in your efforts Choose a location for your meeting It can be your home or any public meeting space at a library church or community center Pick a date and time that you think will accommodate the most women s schedules Write up a brief meeting announcement and send it out to your local newspapers and radio stations You can also create a handout or postcard and put it out in locations such as the farmers market co op grocery
