Ascension Genesys Women in Agriculture Farm host Harvest Gathering

GRAND BLANC TWP. — Join us for a day down on the farm! The Women in Agriculture Farm Development Center is hosting their first Harvest Gathering on Oct. 26 from 10 a.m.-4pm.

Learn about their work, stewardship, composting with worms and celebrate diverse communities to build a vibrant and resilient food system. Tours and demonstrations on the Women’s Farm will be available. See vermicomposting (composting with worms) up close and personal and hear how the process involves the Ascension Genesys Hospital food waste diversion program.

Enjoy fresh produce and taste samples from the Flint Mobile Food Truck, Edible Flint, and many more vendors!

The Women in Agriculture Farm Development Center is a 3-acre farm located on the Ascension Genesys Campus and serves as a demonstration farm for women beginning to farm and is home to one incubator farmer.

The Women in Agriculture Farm Development Center supports women who are beginning a farming business, provides resources to become economically independent farm business owners, and helps to reduce barriers in starting a successful farm business.

The Farm is located near the greenhouse (west end of Ascension Genesys Hospital parking lot D) on 3181 Pollock Rd in Grand Blanc. — G.G.
