Annie’s Project is a six-part course designed to strengthen women’s role in modern farm enterprises. Annie’s Project was created for women who live and work in a complex, dynamic farm business environment. The project focuses on five broad aspects of risk that are typical to agriculture: human, financial, marketing, production and legal.
Ohio workshops are scheduled for January through March, 2009 and registration cost is $65, which includes materials and meals or refreshments. Seating is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
Workshops will be offered in 12 different counties including Ashtabula , Auglaize, Defiance, Erie, Fairfield, Knox, Montgomery, Morgan, Ross, Stark, Wood (Wood County will focus topics specific to the green industry), and Wyandot.
A map of locations and other information can be found on the Erie County OSU Extension Web site, http://erie.osu.edu/ – click on “Agriculture and Natural Resources” and then “Women in Agriculture.”
In most cases, workshops are sponsored by several OSU Extension county offices, and anyone residing in nearby areas may sign up for any of the workshops.
