Lyons, NE - The Center for Rural Affairs and Women Food and Ag Network are providing an informal, yet highly informative Women Farmer Learning Circle at Prairie Plate Restaurant/Lakehouse Farm in Waverly, NE on August 5, 2015.

“Women are invited to join the Learning Circle, whether you're beginning in farming, interested in becoming a farmer, or already a seasoned farmer. You'll hear about resources for financing, land purchase, business planning, cost and value of supporting local growers, marketing, distribution, and more,” says event organizer Sandra Renner with the Center for Rural Affairs.

The event begins at 4:30pm with an on-site farm tour. Then participants will hear from speakers while they enjoy a group meal prepared by Prairie Plate, ending with opportunities to network.
