Opportunities for women part of series


ZANESVILLE, Ohio — Women Grow Ohio’s After Chores series will focus on “How can I make a living at what I love to do?”

The series will take place in three mid-Ohio locations with the first event in Zanesville, at the Mike Seiler Studio, 129 South Seventh St. Feb. 25 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., featuring a workshop taught by Carie Starr, of Cherokee Valley Bison Ranch, and Annie Warmke, of Blue Rock Station, on assessing resources and how to use those resources to make a living.

Women farmers, farmsteaders, urban gardeners and homesteaders are invited to attend for a day of learning, speed networking at lunch, exhibitors, and a seed swap.

The cost is $15 and includes lunch and materials. The seed swap is hosted by Amanda Preston of Bee Good Gardens (Columbus) and attendees are invited to bring seeds and swaps to share. The workshop series focuses on topics like identifying strategies for making a living, how to price products so they make a profit, and how to market in a way that generates the right customers and consumers.

There will also be displays provided by the USDA Rural Development, the Farm Service Agency, plus area vendors and organizations.
