GREENFIELD — The Annie’s Project program will be offered in six sessions 6 to 9 p.m. Thursdays, beginning Feb. 6. The program will continue through March 13. 

Annie’s Project is designed to empower farmwomen to manage information systems used in decision-making processes and build local networks throughout the state. The target audience is farmwomen with a passion for business and involvement.

Farm women will receive training for managing information in the areas of: financial records, production records, marketing plans and risk management, legal/regulation records and documentation and human resources and time management.

Annie was a woman who grew up in a small farm community with a goal to marry a farmer and she did. Annie spent her lifetime learning how to be an involved business partner with her farm husband. This is Annie’s project – to take her life’s experiences and share it with farmwomen living and working in a complex, dynamic, evolving business environment.

Cost of the program is $75 per person and class size is limited. Participants should contact Adair County Extension at 641-743-8412 prior to Jan. 30 to enroll.
