The Human Side of Farm Transitions Circle

May 22, 2023 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Are the people in your life making your transition challenging? Try our FREE Farm Transition Resiliency Circle to help you rise to the challenge.

The Circle is an ongoing FREE group that allows those experiencing or preparing for a farm transition to have a safe space to share ideas, challenges, and successes. A particular focus is the human side of transitions. Each group meeting has an education component on a topic related to farm transition followed by a discussion of whatever participants would like to discuss related to farm transitions. The Circle includes Monica McConkey moderating the discussion, and farmers who have experienced farm transitions who offer some practical insights. We will also discuss available transition resources.

About our presenters: 

Monica Kramer McConkey, Rural Mental Health Specialist and LPC has 25+ years of experience in the behavioral health field as a child and adolescent counselor, program supervisor, and administrator. Monica grew up on a farm and has an intimate understanding of the dynamics that contribute to farm stress and its impact on farm families. Monica is very much in touch with the agricultural way of life. 

Registration is limited for each session. Participants may come to one session, come every month or join the circle as needed across time. Each session will last one and a half hours. Participants do not need to attend the entire session. Circle participants are anonymous, and they choose how to participate – they can just listen; they can type in questions or comments, or they may unmute and verbalize questions or comments.   The session will not be recorded. Participants cannot see each other, nor do they see each other’s names.
