Your Body, Your Tools

Women's bodies are different from men's. The tools women use should be different too! Learn more about how the ergonomics of farming and how the right moves and tools can help women farmers avoid injuries and pain.

Ann Adams and Liz Brensinger of Green Heron Farms in New Tripoli, PA, are avid gardeners-turned-market-growers with a passion for sustainability, heirloom varieties and great food. After 13+ years “growing” Green Heron Farms – and meeting lots of other women who, like them, were in search of tools and equipment that fit their bodies and their needs – they formed Green Heron Tools in 2008. Green Heron Tools is a company dedicated to providing gardening and farming tools and equipment specially designed for women.

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
