Annie’s Project 2013 announced

| October 4, 2012

COSHOCTON – Coshocton County OSU Extension will be offering Annie’s Project in early 2013. This is a six-week program designed to empower farm women to manage information systems used in critical decision making processes and to build local networks throughout the state.  The target audience is farm women with a passion for business and involvement.

Annie’s Project is named after the mother of a University of Illinois Extension agent. Annie spent her lifetime learning how to be an involved business partner with her farm husband. Together they did great things, but it wasn’t easy. This is Annie’s project – to take her life’s experiences and share it with farm women living and working in a complex, dynamic, evolving business environment.

Farm women will receive training in five areas of risk management: Financial, marketing, production, legal/institutional and human resources.

This women’s empowerment program will be offered in six sessions in 2013 beginning on Tuesday, January 29 and continuing through Tuesday, March 5. There will be a meal starting at 5:40 p.m. for each session, and the program will run from 6 to 9 p.m.

The individual participant cost is set statewide by OSU Extension at $95, but thanks to generous contributions of local sponsors, the cost for the Coshocton program will be $60 per person. Current local sponsors include Farm Credit Services, PNC Bank and Coshocton County Farm Bureau.

The class size is limited to 20 participants. Sign up will begin Nov. 1. If you have questions about enrollment or program sponsorship, contact Emily Adams at the Coshocton County Extension Office at 740-622-2265.
