From Farms to Incubators: Women Innovators Revolutionizing How Our Food Is Grown
From Farms to Incubators: Women Innovators Revolutionizing How Our Food Is Grown by Amy Wu is a collection of profiles of minority women making a big impact in the field of agriculture. With their variety of backgrounds, interests, and educations, these women seek to solve problems in the food system through innovation and technology. As food production and food producers face unprecedented struggles ranging from land shortages to climate change to the recent pandemic, creative solutions are needed now more than ever.
When so much of farming can be doom and gloom and nostalgia, this bright group of women bring a lightness and enthusiasm of ingenuity to the narrative. We need new stories in agriculture to get us past the “tractors and overalls” version of white male farmers in their 60s puttering away in a cloud of fossil fuel emissions. These women might be a minority, but their ideas are anything but that. This book starts us down the path of those new stories, showing that careers in agriculture can be diverse and appropriate for anyone who eats.
