Grab a cuppa and join us for a restful hour building connections with other women who cohabit the land. This is designed to be a space for women to ground ourselves, share stories and create time for reflection, away from our daily routines. We hope to develop a non-hierarchical and restorative space that recognises the cyclical rhythms of the living world and our own place within this.
The idea to set this group up came from conversations during a Women in Ranching workshop at the Oxford Real Farming Conference Global 2021. Many women in attendance expressed a need for something similar in the UK – a female-centred space for regenerative farming with a focus on social well being and mutual support rather than technical agricultural chat.
This is the first meetup which we hope will lead to more. We’ll have a little time set aside to explore what would work best in terms of timings, frequency of meetings, format, hosting and other ideas that may come up.
Who is the group for?
Women farmers, growers, crofters, foresters, smallholders, ecologists and land workers, who are based in the UK and Ireland. Women both rural and urban who tend to the soil or who aspire to farm but don’t have access to land. This is a group for people with a regenerative mindset and agroecological approach to farming, who care about earth restoration and food justice. We welcome transwomen and non-binary folks, and hope to make this space as inclusive as possible to people from all backgrounds.
Who is hosting the meetup?
The first gathering is co-hosted by Nikki Yoxall and Clem Sandison, but we are looking for collaborators so please get in touch if you’d like to help with facilitation. We’re not running this in affiliation with any organisations.
