The mission of Annie's Project is to empower farm women to be better business partners through networks and by managing and organizing critical information. Annie's Project is designed especially for women farmers, partners on the farm, agri-businesses, or those working within the food system to help develop management and decision-making skills for their farms.

Sessions include brief presentations from local professionals, discussions focused on the participant's questions, and hands-on trianing.

This program is for women who have been involved with farming or part of farming for three to five years, and want to develop their understanding, interpretation, and opportunities in sustainable agriculture. However, this series is still applicable for those looking to get into farming, or with only a few years' experience. Annie's Project gives farm women the opportunity to learn from local agricultural professionals and importantly, network and share their farming experiences with other women in similar situations.

Annie's Project provides education in 5 Risk Categories, including Financial, Human Resources, Legal, Market, and Production.

The cost is $75 for the series and includes meals, all course materials including copies of all presentations and worksheets, professional advice from guest facilitators and trainers, and support from a variety of community partners. Please register by Tuesday, February 25, 2020.
