Rosella Mosby of Mosby Farms is attending the ninth annual American Farm Bureau Women’s Communications Boot Camp this week.

More than 40 women applied for the opportunity and only 15 were accepted for the training session Oct. 13-16.

The group will meet elected officials in Washington, D.C. Mosby was scheduled to meet Congressman Dave Reichert (R-WA).

“We could choose our subject matter, which included biotechnology, clean water act or agricultural labor. I chose agriculture labor because it hits close to home,” Mosby said in a new release.

The camp is open to all women who are Farm Bureau members and want to enhance their communication and leadership skills. The intensive training offers sessions on public speaking, testifying, targeting your message, working with the media and seeking elected office.

Participants completed an intense round of media interviews on their pre-selected issue and practiced testifying on the issue. Feedback was given throughout the camp in order to prepare participants to target their message to a variety of audiences.

The training offers multiple interactive opportunities to build skills needed to communicate about agriculture and for Farm Bureau.

In March, Mosby was recruited by the U.S. State Department’s Agricultural Trade Office to visit Japan on a countrywide program speaking on Agricultural Entrepreneurship: Youth Engagement in Rural Revitalization.

Mosby shared her insights and expertise to help recruit the next generation in Japan to engage in rural agriculture. The program was designed to inspire young Japanese, particularly women, by giving practical tips on how to start agricultural businesses and shedding light on how it can contribute to local revitalization.

Mosby has run a successful CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, a farm stand and community outreach. She also has worked with local chefs through her family farm in Auburn for years.
