The Original Grazing School for Women is an annual event held in northeastern Alberta. The Grazing School for Women events attract women from Alberta and Saskatchewan and promotes sustainable agriculture, long-term livestock management strategies, environmental education and networking with like-minded women. The Grazing School has been very successful, attracting over 200 farming and ranching women in the past 10 years. 

The Original Grazing School for Women is a partnership between Cows and Fish: Alberta Habitat Management Society, Beaver County, M.D. of Bonnyville, Lamont County, M.D. of Wainwright, County of Two Hills, County of Vermilion River, M.D. of Provost and Smoky Lake County.
