Drs. Becot and Inwood conducted a study about how farm families balance children and work. Having heard from over 860 farm families from 47 states, the authors are now generously presenting this webinar about their research results to the members of the ASCFG! Come hear about how farm families around the country are navigating taking care of their children and getting the work done on and off the farm. There will also be an opportunity for you to share about your own experiences and what solutions would make it easier taking care of the children and running your business.
Dr. Florence Becot is a rural sociologist and researcher at the National Farm Medicine Center (USA). Marking a departure from previous work on the economics of local food, her research agenda is centered on the safety, well-being, and economic viability of the farm population. Her current work includes health insurance, healthcare, and childcare for farm families and responses to the farm crisis.
Dr. Shoshanah Inwood is a rural sociologist and an associate professor in SENR at Ohio State University. She holds degrees in rural sociology, environmental science and biology. Her career has focused on the intersection of agriculture, environment, and society in the context of community and economic development. Shoshanah has maintained a dual focus studying both the role of communities in food system development and the socio-cultural household level processes that underlay the American food and agriculture system.\
This webinar is complimentary to ASCFG members. Zoom instructions will be sent out the day of the event. This webinar will be recorded and posted to the ASCFG Members Only Learning Portal.
