Alejandro Tecum & Suraya Arslan - Adelante Mujeres

In This Episode

Betty Berning is joined by Suraya Arlslan and Alejandro Tecum of Adelante Mujeres, part of the Washington Organic Sustainable Alliance. Adelante Mujeres offers programming to Spanish-speaking farmers in various ways, including traditional classes, in-the-field training, mentorship, and conferences. One of the unique facets of this group is that all programming is offered in Spanish to reach their audience best. Their group even inspired a young woman to come to the farm rather than go to the beach with her family!

About the Podcast

Farm Answers
For Beginning Farmers & Ranchers
The Farm Answers podcast takes a deeper look at projects funded by the United States Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture’s Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program (USDA-NIFA BFRDP) and how they are reaching beginning farmers and ranchers.

In each episode, we sit down and talk with project directors… as they share their stories and discuss how their project has made a lasting impact on beginning farmers and ranchers.

Join us as we learn more about the people and projects helping to ensure the long-term success of US agriculture.
