Annie's Project debuts in Shelby County

February 13, 2020

Annie's Project is a six-session course that is a discussion-based workshop bringing women together to learn from experts in production, financial management, human resources, marketing and the legal field.

There will be plenty of time for questions, sharing, reacting and connecting with presenters and fellow participants.  It's a relaxed, fun and dynamic way to learn, grow and meet other farm women.

Whether new or experienced, understanding the five areas of agricultural risk, knowing how to analyze agricultural spreadsheets, and other necessary skills are vital.  Annie's Project is a platform where one may learn about theses topics in a friendly environment where questions and discussion are welcomed, allowing learning process to flourish.

Annie's Project courses have successfully reached more than 9,000 farm and ranch women in 33 states.  The next one in your area begins on March 5th at the Purdue Extension - Shelby County Office in Shelbyville, IN.

Thanks to a partial scholarship for each participant equaling one-half of the program's cost by the Shelby County Ag Promotion Committee, course registration is $40 per person, which includes a workbook, support materials and light meal for all sessions.  A light supper will be served before each class at 4:30 pm with the program beginning at 5:00 pm.  Course size is limited, so please register soon.
