The event will celebrate the role women play in agriculture. The event will also host discussions on the challenges and opportunities women face in their work.

Attendees will talk with legislators and other state leaders, while also helping to inspire more women to pursue farming and other related fields.

“It’s about people talking about the impacts of their lives in agriculture and how that intersection happens and is there ways the legislature can help with policy as they move forward,” said Colleen Landkamer, the Minnesota director of the USDA.

The event begins at 9:30 a.m.
