World War II Women’s Land Army
Tuesday, October 10th at 6:30pm
The Women’s Land Army of America: By 1942, over two million men had left the farms to join the military, yet the crops had to be harvested to feed the U.S., its troops, and our Allies. Gas and rubber rationing impacted the use of migrant workers. Listen to members of the Women’s Land Army and the farmers they served to learn how the WLAA was formed and saved the agricultural industry from ruin during this critical time in our nation’s history.

Our goal with this class is to cover Immune System support from a proactive standpoint, so that we all can stay above the wellness line.
