Along with our friends at Nationwide, we are on a journey to better understand the "S-Word", or as you might know it: sustainability. Yes, we are digging into sustainability in a whole new way because it carries a different meaning and connotation to each of us. It depends on who we are, what boots we wear on a daily basis, our background, our families, our businesses….you name it. To break it all down, I had a discussion about what sustainability means to three women from three different parts of agriculture: Julie Kenney, the Deputy Secretary of Agriculture for the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, and a FarmHer right here in Iowa, Hannah borg, a FarmHer raising chickens in Nebraska, and Casey Cox, a FarmHer from a diverse family farm in Georgia. These women are professionals, business owners, growers, and consumers who each have their own take on the "S-Word".
