Annie's Project empowers farmwomen

Annie’s Project, a program designed to empower women to be better business partners in agricultural operations, will be Feb. 27 to April 3. The program is hosted by the Carroll, Cass and Howard County Extension offices.

The program aims to help women find new ways to balance family, community and professionalism within the agricultural community while giving them the knowledge necessary to be active and involved farm partners. Sessions will combine lectures, discussion, individual and small group activities and computer training.

Topics include: personality profiles, farm and family finances, farm and ranch financial analysis, computer programs for farm business management, crop and livestock marketing and farm business planning.

Sessions will be from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. with the first class at the Deer Creek Community Center, 4585 N. Ind. 29 in Camden. Class sites will rotate between Flora, Kokomo and Logansport for six consecutive weeks.

Registration is $75 and includes meals and materials. Reservations are required by Feb. 20. For more information, call Paul Marcellino at 765-456-2313 or email him at pmarcellino@purdue.edu.
