One of the great joys in working in a non-profit organization is being part of at team that really makes a positive impact on peoples lives. Aggie Doue, owner of Aggie’s Farm in Texas just graduated from HMI’s Beginning Farmers & Ranchers: Women in Texas program and posted a blog about her experience learning Holistic Management.
I came to the Beginning Women Farmers program a new landowner, having read and learned just enough to know that I didn’t know where to begin. Through this course, I have learned how to pull myself up by the bootstraps, create a viable farm plan, and implement it. I know others who have succeeded, and who are willing to help me.
The pleasure of working with this group of capable, knowledgeable, and motivated women, and the easy flowing communication, made for an outstanding learning experience. The relationships birthed in this crucible will be critical to my success as I go forward to create an economically and ecologically healthy farm.
We are so proud of Aggie and all the other women that have graduated from the 6th year of this program which was partially funded by USDA NIFA
