On February 25, DFCLT President Denise Dennis delivered the Keynote Address at the National Women in Agriculture Association’s 13th Anniversary and Black History Month virtual celebration, “Join Farm Girls in Pearls as They Serve the Ag Tea.” In her introduction, NWIAA Executive Director, Tammy Gray-Steele, Ph.D., of Oklahoma, applauded the Dennis Farm and Denise’s DFCLT leadership for representing two overlooked groups in American Agricultural history, African Americans and women.
Brook Henderson of Chester County, who heads Pennsylvania’s NWIAA chapter and told her colleagues about DFCLT, said, “I have aligned with NWIAA to help spread awareness in underserved communities about agriculture and its connection to nutrition and good health.”
“The women of NWIAA are educating young people about agriculture and helping end food deserts in urban communities across the United States,” said Dennis. It is my pleasure to help celebrate the phenomenal work they are doing to better so many lives.”
