Annie’s Project is based on a woman who grew up in a small farm community with the goal of marrying a farmer, and she did. Annie spent her life learning how to be an involved partner with her husband. Annie’s Project is designed to empower women to manage information systems used in critical decision making processes and to build local networks throughout the community and state.
Each program is designed as a six week course especially for agricultural women to help them develop management and decision making skills and build peer relationships. Sessions include brief presentations and discussions focus on the participant’s questions. About a third of each program is dedicated to discussion. The program provides an opportunity to learn from agriculture professionals and network with other women in similar situations.
A typical program would include information in the areas of financial records, production records, marketing plans and risk management, legal/regulatory issues, records and documentation, human resources, and time management.
Annie’s Project is organized by UW Extension offices around the state. To find out about classes, contact Cole Ehmke UW Extension Specialist at (307) 766-3782.
