Incorporating gardening, home preservation, and a healthy diet is not always easy, especially for women involved in agriculture with demands coming from every direction. The Penn State Extension Dairy Team is offering women a chance to relax, learn and network, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, April 2, at the Bistro at the Village Green, 403 Village Way, Martinsburg.

Part of the continuing Women Rooted in Agriculture series, the meeting is free with lunch provided. Registration is required by March 25. This workshop will bring in Extension team expertise from dairy, nutrition and master gardener educators. Topics include garden planting, blueprints, pest management, canning techniques, home food preservation, healthy meals and more.

“Many farm women are stressed with running a business, raising a family and school activities, most find it hard to plan healthy meals with limited time to prepare them. This event is about utilizing time to have healthy foods available to your family and reduce stress around mealtime,” said Amber Yutzy, Penn State Extension dairy educator based in Huntingdon County.

Attendees can register by visiting or by calling 877-345-0691. For more information, contact Yutzy at or at 814-643-1660.
