Annie's Project

Management Education for Farm Women

Purpose: To provide mentoring for farm women with varying levels of business skills. Farm women come from many different backgrounds, from rural to city life. Women who are new to the farm business may be overwhelmed and afraid to ask questions. While women who are accustomed to the farm business may understand agriculture, but feel helpless with new technologies, like computers.

Over a six week period, Annie’s project gives these farm women the opportunity learn from Extension specialists as well as from each other. The class includes presentations, group activities, guest speakers and group discussions.
