Women in Agriculture

Launching on International Women’s Day 2019 is the online discussion group for those who cannot get to the workshops in person. Click here to get involved with a wonderful group of like-minded women.

We are coming to the end of the first year of the Women in Agriculture discussion groups. These saw a series of three workshops in ten regions across Scotland. These groups have been hugely successful, and 2019 will see another round of workshops kicking off.

The need for these workshops was highlighted by The Scottish Government’s study on “Women in Farming and the Agriculture Sector”. Recommendations in the report stated that practical hands-on training programmes need to be targeted at women, and there are a number of topics that women have identified as their priorities for learning.
