Have you joined the Farmgirl sisterhood? I did a few months ago and it's a lot of fun. Here's some information in case you would like to join!
We are Sisters — a sisterhood of farmgirls. We’re country, we’re city, and every texture and stripe in between. It’s not at all about where we live, but how we live. We get together to Chat online, form in-the-flesh Farmgirl Chapters, and even virtual chapters called Henhouses. We love to share stories, to craft, to garden, and to nurture the next generation of Farmerettes and Young Cultivators. And when our work is done, we get together to go camping, fishing, and “glamping” as Farmgirls on the Loose. To find out more, go to www.FarmgirlSisterhood.org.
Why a hen?
We call our hen “Henrietta.” She symbolizes the “can do” attitude of being a farmgirl. What are the noble farmgirl traits? Farmgirls are multi-talented, resourceful, creative, strong, down-to-earth, and generous by nature. We enjoy creating things, whether it is in the kitchen, our studios, or the wood shop. We may not live in the country, but friendship, fun, community, and creativity bloom wherever we happen to be “planted.” In other words, farmgirls can do anything they set their minds to, sorta’ like the Little Red Hen in the famous children’s story. We enjoy the fun of getting together to create, to help others in our communities, or to share ideas. We believe in the power of the Farmgirl Sisterhood to change the world for the better!
Why an apron?
Since Mary Jane has been “aproned” her entire life, it’s only fitting that our Henrietta hen put on an apron. Mary Jane’s mother, a woman of many aprons, taught her that an apron is the universal symbol for a grown-up girl’s 4-H program (“home,” “hearth,” “handiwork,” and “hogs”). So, a woman who means business (and has work to do) is never without one!
