Annie's Project to begin in January

Farm and ranch women are generating a cultural tide in American agriculture that is moving management, assets and opportunities to a new wave of farmers across the country. At Annie’s Project courses, farm women become empowered to be better business partners or sole operators through networks and by managing and organizing critical information. Annie’s Project is a six week 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's plenty of time for questions, sharing, reacting and connecting with presenters and fellow participants. For more information about the program contact Gisele Jefferson, 970-345-2287 or Emily Mollohan at 970-521-6762. This educational program is made available through Colorado State University Extension partnering with Northeastern Junior College.
