Why Annie's Project?

Empowering farm women to be better business partners through networks and by managing and organizing critical information.

This six-session course 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 your presenters and fellow participants.

It's a relaxed, fun and dynamic way to learn, grow and meet other women in agriculture.
