Museum Talks: Farmerettes — Osgoode Township Museum

March 3 - 19:00 - 20:00

This virtual talk is all about the fascinating and little-known history of the Farmerettes! From 1941-1952 approximately 20,000 girls 16 -18 years of age enlisted in the Ontario Farm Service Force, ensuring that food would continue to be cultivated and harvested as they replaced the men who left farm labour to enlist for military service.
Their motto was “WE LEND A HAND” and that they did, as well as bending a back. Hear about the Farmerette Camps, their accommodations, the work in fields, orchards and vineyards, the fun, and the experiences of the women who were part of the group of people known as the greatest generation.
