FarmHer, Inc. by Marji Guyler-Alaniz: slideshow &emdash;

Women have always been an important but mostly undocumented aspect of agriculture. In recent years, women are rising to the forefront of agriculture in so many ways; as owner/operators, land-owners, workers, mentors and so many more. Through my project FarmHer, I am documenting the amazingly important role that women play in our agriculture system; providing food, giving to their communities and sharing with others. FarmHer opens at the Viaduct Gallery Oct 3, 7 PM
