This is run by my friend and neighbor on her gorgeous land in New Hampshire that she has been farming for 30 years. She and the women teaching these classes are an incredible wealth of knowledge that I hope other women will take advantage of!

I'm a little concerned as to why it's 'women only', but I'm going to let the post stay even though it does seem terribly sexist.

I hope that your friend will also consider putting on an event where everyone is welcome, regardless of their gender.
