Join us for Annie's Project this winter! Annie's Project is a six week online experience designed especially for farm women to help them develop their management and decision-making skills for their farms. Annie’s Project is designed for farm women who have been in farming, or agri-business, or part of the food system for three to five years, and want to develop their understanding, interpretation, and opportunities in sustainable agriculture. Annie’s Project gives farm women the opportunity to learn from female agricultural professionals and network with other women in similar situations.
Annie’s Project provides education in production, price or market, financial, institutional and legal, and human and personal risk. At the end of six weeks, participants will —
Understand personality types to communicate better with business partners
Put family living expenses together with other costs of doing business on the farm
Identify production risks on-farm and prioritize risk management strategies to minimize losses
The cost is $45 for the series and includes a padfolio, copies of all presentations and worksheets, access to financial and legal advice, and support from a variety of community partners. The series will take place on Mondays & Thursdays, February 1st-March 11th, 7-8:30pm via Zoom. This year we are waiving the fee for NYS women veterans interested in getting into agriculture.
