PITTSBORO — Beginning September 2021, Chatham Community Library will host a series of quarterly discussions highlighting women changemakers in Chatham County. The series will address areas of interest to county residents, viewed from the perspective of women engaged in both traditional and non-traditional careers including agriculture, entrepreneurship, education, the arts, law enforcement, and social activism.

The first virtual program will be held from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 18. The panel will feature Chatham County farmers, including:

• Tiffany Cooper, Bee Hoppy Farm, Pittsboro

• Emily Boynton, Fiddlehead Farm, Pittsboro

• Tenita Solanto, Green Panda Farms, Siler City

• Karen Jordan, Brush Creek Swiss Farms, Siler City

• Patricia Parker, In Good Heart Farm, Pittsboro

• McKenzie Withington, Lilly Den Farm, Goldston

N.C. Cooperative Extension Agent Debbie Roos of the Chatham County Center will moderate the panel. Panelists will discuss the challenges and rewards of being a woman farmer in Chatham among other aspects.

This virtual event is free and open to the public and will be presented via Zoom. Participants should register online to receive the meeting link. Residents may visit the libraries’ website, www.chathamlibraries.org, or contact the Library at 919-545-8084 or rita.vanduinen@chathamlibraries.org for more information.

The Celebrating Women of Chatham series was created in response to the library’s March 2021 virtual forum celebrating Women’s History Month: “Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow: A Woman’s Perspective of Chatham County.” A recording of this program is available on the library’s YouTube channel.
