Hi Sara, my name is Kait and I work for Canada's Fruit & Veg Tech X-Change.  We are hosting our inaugural outdoor horticulture event this coming July 12, 13, 14  2012.  Part of our event is going to include a "Farm Female XPO" as we felt this was an area we greatly overlooked last year.  I see that you hold Professional Women in Agriculture gatherings and I was wondering if you could send me some more information about this.  If you could respond via email to info@fruitveg.ca it would be greatly appreciated.  You also seem like a very influential woman in agriculture and I would love to connect with you at some point and discuss some of my ideas for the woman's expo and get the thoughts and suggestions for women in the business.  Thanking you in advance, kind regards.  Kait Schuster
