HELP PROMOTE AGRICULTURE

        

California Women for Agriculture (CWA)  members are comprised of active farm, ranch and nursery operators and partners, agricultural trade association, and commodity group leaders.  CWA fills the much-needed role of an informed and actively involved group of volunteers supporting agriculture.

 

We invite you to visit one of our meetings or attend an event. Our members are more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the organization and how you can join.

 

Our chapter covers Fresno and Madera counties in the Central Valley region of California.

 

CWA's basic role is to help its members develop the knowledge and skills necessary to convey the mutual benefits of a vibrant agricultural economy and healthy rural communities to those who are in positions to impact the future of agriculture in California.
